Meet the artist – Camila Quintero
MA Visual Arts: Illustration, Camberwell College of Art, 2018
Camila Quintero is a visual artist and graphic designer from Bogota, Colombia who is based in London.
Her work references different disciplines across art, architecture, photography and design. She has established a way to work with abstract geometry by using both fluid and controlled automatism. Colour and composition are fundamental to her work.
Camila is also keen to develop works that have a 3D quality by exploring perspective, distortion and deconstruction. Her work has been selected for the UAL Collection and she is also exhibiting as part of the Flock graduates show.
What was the inspiration behind the piece(s) in not just a shop?
The inspiration behind my work is the use of distorted and deconstructed geometry. The title of the painting is ‘Geometric Utopia’. My aim was to create an improvised composition using geometry in an unconventional way where the elements would interact, creating a sense of unrealistic spatiality and movement. The prints are part of my final project for the MA. This was the results following research based on the emotional responses that we have to our surroundings. These works establish a moment at a specific time of the day and the sensorial response we have from that.
