Gonzalo Fuenmayor was born in Barranquilla, Colombia in 1977. He received an MFA from School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, Massachusetts in 2004. He also studied a BFA in Fine Arts, and Art Education from School of Visual Arts in 2000, where he was awarded a full tuition scholarship from the Keith Haring Foundation.
His drawings are included at the Drawing Center’s Flat Files, and has been awarded numerous awards including the Stacey Sussman Traveling Award in 2000, Silas Rhodes Family Award in 2000, and recently granted Third place at the 2011 All-Media Juried Biennial at the Art and Culture Center of Hollywood, FL. Gonzalo Fuenmayor has exhibited in solo and group shows in the U.S., Colombia and Europe. He participated at Colombia’s 42nd National Artist Salon- Caribbean Zone in 2009, ArteCámara 2010, Florida Contemporary 2011 at the Naples Museum in Florida, and recently highlighted in the New American Paintings #88 South Edition as an Editor’s Pick. He currently lives and works in Miami, FL.
Fuenmayor´s recent body of work examines ideas of dislocation and exoticism through a series of large-scale charcoal drawings. Cross-cultural and hybrid identities are explored by Fuenmayor through obvious and clichéd aspects of tropical culture together with Pop and Victorian style elements.The struggle to imagine cultural specificity is inherent in the intersection of extravagant and decadent 17th and 18th century imagery together with exuberant tropical landscapes. Fuenmayor employs different in order to subordinate the contradictory into a delicate and imaginative order, with the aim of questioning notions of place and belonging. As the past, the present, the exotic and the familiar collide, absurd and fantastic panoramas arise.
