Professional photographer and industrial designer Ivan Salazar is passionate about analog photography and dark room processes. Recently, Ivan has been exploring stencil techniques as a way to incorporate his photographs into public art. His proposed artistic idea is to present aesthetics while playing with geometric layers that form messages or make up words hidden in overlapping spaces. Ivan fuses these elements with photographic portraits of common people and animals with Afro-Colombian roots, or "invisible heroes" as he describes them. According to him these characters are the ones who truly tell the history of life.
Fresco Exchange aims to promote and connect artists on an international scale. The exchange is fueled by the notion that art can serve as a tool to travel, learn, and experience new cultural settings, as sometimes political borders can present difficulties for individuals to travel between certain countries. We encourage and select artwork through a curated process to participate in gallery exhibits across collaborating cities. We also aim to host artists from different backgrounds and work to establish a relationship where individual artists can contribute and participate in locally organized public art projects, including murals, workshops and presentations.
