(Bogota 1959 -)


I once found a small action figure lying on the floor. I picked it up and felt I
was rescuing a survivor who had made it through a very difficult life. That
day I was inspired to look for a way to combine many of these forgotten
toys into a sculptural work and create new icons, shaped by hundreds of
different stories coexisting in harmony and breathing life into a new
being ... a being that will hopefully live much longer.
