JULIANA PLEXXO (Colombia 1994)
Juliana Plexxo is a Colombian-born artist who has taken the art world by storm. Raised in Quito, Ecuador, Juliana’s love for visual arts was cultivated at a young age, drawing inspiration from esteemed painter Oswaldo Guayasamín.
In 2019, Juliana was invited to join the prestigious workshop of Joan Barbará in Barcelona, Spain, which has hosted legendary artists such as Salvador Dalí, Joan Miró, and Antoni Tàpies. Specializing in the ancestral technique of engraving, Juliana’s unique and distinctive style is shaped by her utilization of copper plates. However, what sets her apart is her decision to destroy the metal plate after the process, ensuring that there are no duplicates of her work and giving each piece a sense of exclusivity.
Juliana’s artistic mark extends beyond her workshop endeavors, with her collaborative mural projects gracing the vibrant Wynwood district in Miami and the former residence of Simón Bolívar in Ecuador.
Recognized for her excellence and potential, Juliana was nominated for the “Best Young Talent” award by the University of Berkeley, California. Her outstanding contributions to the art world have also earned her a prestigious place on Forbes’ 2022 list of the 50 most creative people.
Juliana holds the distinction of being the first female artist to exhibit her work at “La Capilla del Hombre Museum” in Quito, following the passing of maestro Guayasamín. Her exhibitions at renowned locations such as Soho House in Los Angeles and Barcelona, as well as the Yacht Club in Monaco, have solidified her place as a contemporary artist to watch. Additionally, she has participated in art fairs across the Americas and Europe, including the one in Innsbruck, Austria.
