Alejandro Sánchez

Born in Bogota, Colombia in 1981, Alejandro Sanchez graduated in Bogotá as a visual artist in 2009 and three years later, in 2012, he finished his postgraduate studies in technologies for pictorial production at the National University of the Arts in Buenos Aires, Argentina.

Alejandro investigates social changes in Latin American countries, especially in Colombia. He is constantly willing to fulfill his concerns around social and political systems such as globalization, democratization, and economic growth, which produce alterations in social structures. Thus, examines the factors driving the development of this change, such as free trade, privatizations, and multinationals. Through his artistic production, he reflects on the consequences that social changes can bring, which is why we find themes in his work such as socio-cultural displacement and cultural uprooting.
