TSAMANI TOVAR NINO

Bogota 1991

Artist, socially committed utopian, researcher, but primarily a believer. In this last adjective, Tsamani, in addition to finding the foundation of his artistic practices, finds the essence of art, its primordial sense: to make believe. He believes in the communicative and transformative potential of art, which is why he himself defines his work as inclusive and relational, a relationship that is configured as a declaration of challenge towards elite artistic practices, in which the word with the public becomes the tool to popularize the knowledge of art. As a believer, the seeker uses his symbols, his sacred materials, to trigger experiences that can touch other spiritualities, other discourses and other ways of believing and thinking. Ultimately, Tsamani claims to be a "free believer".
