Painting / Grafton Road
Jhonatan Pulido is a Colombian painter based in London. He studied fine arts at the Universidad Nacional de Colombia between 2009 and 2014 and Painting at the Royal College of Art from 2017 to 2019. Interested in finding pictorial decisions in contexts that come out of the conventional concept of art, Pulido seeks to reflect on the role this technique and its materiality performs in popular and remote backgrounds, where its value lies more in its functionality than the idea of art itself. His work lays particular emphasis on components of popular Colombian architecture and the logic that it follows and has inherited through history.
