David Sebastian Lopez Restrepo
I was born in Medellín, Colombia, and studied a Bachelor of Fine and Visual Arts at the Universidad Pedagógica y Tecnológica de Colombia (U.P.T.C.). At UPTC I experimented with installation, video art and performance while working as a teacher at the preschool and pedagogic research center, “Rayuela”, where I experimented with different forms of pedagogy and developed a project with children producing short films. When I had graduated from U.P.T.C, I traveled to Argentina, where I studied a master in Combined Artistic Languages at Universidad Nacional de las Artes (U.N.A.). Throughout and after my studies in Colombia and Argentina, I have participated in collective exhibitions in Colombia, Argentina, Mexico, Brasil and Chile. I have also had individual exhibitions in Argentina. One of my video art works is part of the Colombian consulate’s “Artists abroad bank”.
Currently, I live in Copenhagen, Denmark, where I am working with performance, video art, installation, mail art and artist's book.
