Hugo Zapata
We feature a video produced by the Revista Diners about Colombian sculptor Hugo Zapata, on the occasion of the selection of his work Canto (Song) as an emblematic monument to inhabit the Alfonso Bonilla Aragón Airport in the city of Cali, Colombia, in 2017.

Zapata speaks of "reclaimed landscapes" in which he conveys nature's potential through working with stone. He declares that he gives life to landscapes hidden underground as he uncovers national territories, surveys and searches for stones that he collects and then showcases in order to decipher messages and signs pertaining to volume, texture, and form.

Zapata exposes an interest in the essence of the stone that attest to a geological history that he transforms into his own inspiration and aesthetic.
