Luz Angela Lizarazo is an artist active in painting, sculpture, drawing and photography. Among her many works are a series of works inspired by intricate designs of security bars found on most houses in Colombia.
Lizarazo also has a series of photographs, Antejardines, of the actual houses and their window bars.
I discovered Lizarazo’s work while visiting N-ce Arte, a non-profit gallery in Bogota. The show, now closed, featured very large murals, painted directly onto the gallery’s walls and meant to be temporary. Lizarazo painted two large murals in spray paint with stencils based on the designs of these window bars. Here’s a picture that I snapped of the mural during my visit:
Be sure to visit Lizarazo’s website. It’s one of the best designed websites for an artist that I’ve come across.
