Camilo Sanin was born in Bogota, Colombia and now resides in Baltimore, Maryland. He holds a B.A. from the University of Maryland and an M.F.A. from the Hoffberger School of Painting at the Maryland Institute College of Art. Sanin’s paintings are subtle geometric abstractions that use line, color, and form to challenge preconceived visual ideals. By synthesizing cultural materials from differing local realities, the artist takes deeply felt personal experiences, combines them with complex perceptual spaces, and arrives at the creation of new narratives. The interest lies in achieving equivalences through contrasting opposites and in sharing an individual language where center meets periphery, and inclusion is clearly defined in terms of exclusion.
