I found myself wandering the streets of Bogotá in search of a Vinyl Toys shop located in front of “El Parque de la 93”, and instead of finding the shop, I found something way better; a huge munny! A 63” x 40” two-faced munny to be precise! And with it, a whole munny show!
This has got to be the most amazing munny exhibit I have ever been to, featuring such artists as Nadin Ospina, David Manzur, Efraín Saldaña, Felipe Bedoya, Adalberto Camperos, Jaime Abril, Javier Andrés Mozo, Alejandro Riaño, Ramiro Ramírez, Edgar “Nano” Sánchez, Luis Angarita, Sofía Reyes, Ana Lucía Amézquita, Andrés Alarcón, Henry Rincón, Jorge Lewis Morales, Keko, Carlos Torres, Mario Glauschankoff, John Rodríguez, Carlo Achardy, Juan Cobos, Orlando Cueca, Inti Katari Ureta, German Tessarolo, Jessica Ángel, Rocío Suárez, Oscar Baracaldo, Martha Hernández, Guillermo Aponte, Diana Isabel Ocampo and Carlos González , among others.
With 72 Colombian artists at the Expo, nothing could be expected other than pure magic, creativity and lowbrow pop surrealism art! Each artist was handed a “white canvas” munny, and they all intervened with their different methods, capabilities and talents to transform these into pure art.
Apparently this is a non-profit event that will benefit several low-income educational institutions.
The expo will be held until December 31, 2008 at the Centro de Diseño Portobelo, Calle 93B No. 11A-84 in Bogotá, Colombia. Do not miss this amazing opportunity to experience a new form of art! It is pure joy for the eyes and the soul.
For those of you who cannot make it, here’s a peek.
