I am Colombian by birth but really, a nomad by default. I was born in 1987, the year of the rat. I am also a Libra but honestly, I have no idea what this all means about me.
What you need to know is this: I am an art historian, professionally I used to be an art dealer but now I am an illustrator. Art is my thing, my calling in life. Although the commercial side of the art world was not exactly what makes my heart skip a beat, it was and is a subject that intrigues me day in and day out. For the past 10 years I’ve worked as sales and artist liaison in galeries from New York to London, Zurich and my last post was as Sales Director at OMR Gallery in Mexico City.
I started this website in 2012 as a home for my writing. It has been a constant passion project that has kept me motivated, it has tamed my lack of patience, fueled my love of research, of history and of art itself.
The travel content by contributors developed from a small series of art-oriented, quirky guides that I wrote once upon a time for art fairs and biennials. I’ve always gotten the strangest, most unique travel tips from colleagues and fellow creatives. I felt the need to share them.
Lastly, quarantine woke up a strange sleeping monster within me: the watercolor illustrator. Fine Arts was my minor in university. I figured that by learning the ins and outs of how various mediums were produced would make me appreciate art even more – which it has. Pickled Pulp is the name, illustrating is the game.
