Electronic Catalog

- Carlos Jacanamijoy

We invite you to see the Electronic Catalog for the Colombian artist, Carlos Jacanamijoy. On his work has been expressed: “Nevertheless, from his earliest pictorial efforts the artist made it clear that, while the medium of expression he had chosen to communicate the life he had lived and the visions he had seen to the contemporary world was of European origin, he would not deny his roots. He has continued to express the experience and knowledge he has acquired since his childhood, and the values and meanings that marked his physical and spiritual growth.”
