meloquez

Meloquez’s work is characterized by a unique and incomparable language, colors and shapes that attract the viewer, prompting him to reflection. The project emerged from the artist’s passion for colors and materials, coupled with his ability to memorize the shapes around him. Born in Colombia, begins his training to the faculty of industrial design and engineering in Bogota, where he acquired knowledge of the materials, their physicochemical characteristics and the conception of a project. His ambition to learn, leads him to sign up for the Spilimbergo mosaic school in Italy, where he will have the opportunity to study more deeply the color theory, the decorative techniques and developing his handicraft. His experience increases with the collaboration of designers, artists and artisans, of several mosaic restoration work, like the Notre Dame de la Garde in Marsiglia basilica , Roquebrune church ´s floor, the Castle Franzensburg of Vienna, and also public and private works such as the mosaic for Ground Zero in New York.
The desire of squeezing all the ideas he has collected over time becomesincreasingly stronger. The study of the prints and architectures of fashion, and the colors of their native culture, his main source of inspiration, the artist creates a personal language. This shape of expression allows you to put color and shape in the beauty of simplicity, to place in the foreground what normally goes unnoticed, leaving the viewer free to make his point of view.
