Artist Fernando Arias works between Bogotá, the remote Colombian pacific coast of Chocó and London. Through video, photography, installation and actions he explores the human condition. Recurring themes include conflict, sexuality, religion, social and environmental issues.
In addition to his personal practice, Arias involves other artists and professionals on projects through his Foundation Más Arte Más Acción
(More Art More Action). Here, Arias devises interdisciplinary projects to explore challenging social and environmental issues, often involving people from communities silenced by lack of opportunity. The foundation stimulates cultural exchange and dialogue in order to strengthen contemporary arts practice in Colombia and beyond.
