Fernando Jaramillo is a Colombian artist born in 1966, and have been a keen artist since a young age. He grew up in Santa Marta, the oldest Hispanic city on Colombia's Caribbean coast that is surrounded by amazing beaches, swamps, rivers, and mountains rich in biodiversity and ancestral cultures.

Fiction based painter whose work focuses on life seen from a subatomic dimension. He is interested in exploring the interconnection processes between science and art by building micro-macro landscapes of biomorphic abstractions. Fernando has a very fluid style characterized by intense saturated pigments through which he investigates about lyrical and musical meanings inward the soul and substance of colors. He Mixes the painting language, graphic design, and street art expressions. The composition arises from a very intuitive improvisional process, there are no previous studies but it comes from a dialogue with the painting itself.

Jaramillo's artwork has been featured in international publications and media, has exhibited extensively in both solo and group exhibitions, art fairs, and contests. He has been getting National and International reputation and his paintings is also housed in a number of private collections worldwide. Lives and works in Bogota.
