Biography

Jonatan Maldonado is a young Columbian visual artist with a practice strongly influenced by symbolism. He brings into light a synthetic atmosphere that emphasizes the contours of his portraits and his representations of the human body and face.

His life, between Latin America and Europe, and his great eye allowed him to reach artistic maturity very early. His paintings are inspiring, troubling, they excite our senses and they confuse us at the same time; the viewers are taken to an intimate sensorial journey into their own conscience.

Maldonado?s art consists into the use of classical and contemporary pictographic techniques to get the viewers to face themselves, their own naked conscience, their deep truth.

This gifted is a lover of all the arts; he loves all the masters who let him discover in their paintings thematic and stylistic dislocations, the masters who don?t limit themselves to just one form in their practice; Jonatan Maldonado considers that the artwork that is generated by an idea is a living organism, forced to express itself in its own language.

It is through this aspect that Maldonado follows Miro?s lineage; Miro thought that ?Poetry and painting are done in the same way you make love; it's an exchange of blood, a total embrace - without caution, without any thought of protecting yourself.? This is how Maldonado paints, and this is how his paintings are to be perceived; when the eye meets his art, an allegoric ride through the evolution of painting, its themes, its symbols, its suffering begins?
