The Colombian Cultural House / Casa Cultural Colombiana has been bitten by the Latin art bug. As you may be aware, this has been developing in Mississauga, Toronto, and its surroundings, so once again we join the Mississauga Latin Festival by coordinating with the art gallery. As well, for the first time in the history of the festival, we are going virtual!!!

This exhibit is made up of a mixture of cultures, techniques, and colours. This space was created for art professionals as well as those who are beginning their artistic journey. By opening this virtual exhibit, it is providing an opportunity for people around the world to join the community from the comfort of their homes. This exhibit is showcasing the most precise expressions of the current era, under the professional stroke of twelve talented artists.

The artists will captivate you with Modernism, Impressionism, Symbolism, Abstract, and Contemporary art, as well as photography which will form a bond that will surely leave you wanting more.

The Magic of Latin America, as this art exhibition is called, is a real invitation for those who are passionate about art, or for whoever wants to learn more about the Latin flavor up close.

It is an honor to be part of the Canadian community and join all the diverse cultural roots that have grown in Ontario, as well as all of the provinces and territories in Canada, and that's why we want you to know more about Latin Americans and what we can offer.

The Colombian Cultural House / Casa Cultural Colombiana proudly presents these talented artists who have discovered an irreplaceable style of communication about everything that happens in the world around them and invites the community at large to support them in their growth, and striking development in their wonderful works of art.

Carlos Bahamon

CARLOS BAHAMON
Art Gallery

Colombian born in the ’70s. I have been passionate about painting since I can remember; however, for around 15 years I have included it as a vital part of my professional activities.
This journey has brought me to the expression of various abstract scenarios by means of waves, which can be produced when a stone falls into a pool of water, or the movement of air in a shred of cloth. These movements and the volumes that arise from them, are sometimes captured as a thick and plastic liquid, as bands that overlap each other, simply as an excuse to exercise the organic part of color as a volume generating element that leads to visual sensations that they get to border on the psychedelic.

Claribel Angulo

CLARIBEL ANGULO
Art Gallery

“My approach to making a painting is much more intuitive, conceptual and emotive focusing on extracting singular experiences from nature, culture, motifs as well as personal symbols and patterns, both in representational and subjective matters. In my art I like to capture the beauty of nature and mundane objects as an aim to present them as self-portraits- a narrative of the objects I surround myself with and my personal interests. Using mixed media allows me to express my eclectic personality”

Ruth Xospa

RUTH XOSPA
Art Gallery

"My name is Ruth Xospa. I am a photographer. My style is very oriented towards fashion photography. My career as a photographer has given me the opportunity to meet and work with great artists, musicians, celebrities, and top models in Mexico, Spain, Latin America Europe, and Africa, accumulating great experiences and of course beautiful photographs.
I define photography as my need to express something, in this case, my pictures are focused on the search for aesthetics, an emotion, or a feeling, this is key in my process. I think it’s great to have the power to transmit these emotions thru my images to the people so that they can form their own interpretation. I think that capturing the images with the heart is what makes photography interesting to me I am a melancholic of romantic aesthetics and I love black and white photography".
