London’s Sunfest Committee celebrates the 14th anniversary of COLORES DE LATINOAMÉRICA, a premier showcase of creative works by some of Canada’s most talented visual artists who were born in, or have immediate family ties to, various Latin American countries. Colores 2020 exhibitors are truly cosmopolitan figures, who have lived and exhibited in such places as Cuba, Panama, Peru & Venezuela and whose output is prized around the globe.
This year’s roster of artists includes:
• Andrea Vela Alarcón (Peru)
• Ana Arias, aka Ansoara (Venezuela)
• Enrique Bravo (Venezuela)
• Jacquie Comrie (Panama)
• César Morriss (Peru)
• Michelle Peraza (Costa Rica & Cuba)
Colores de Latinoamérica ’20 offers fascinating windows into the worlds of six exceptional visual artists, many of them young, new generation voices with an interdisciplinary focus. Come and experience works by the following: ANDREA VELA ALARCÓN is a Peruvian community artist, illustrator and educator who moved to Toronto in 2015. Andrea’s colourful illustrations are inspired by Amazonian culture and its connection with nature, the feminine and the occult. Having left Venezuela as a child, Montreal multidisciplinary artist ANA ARIAS (aka ANSOARA) expresses her feelings of being between worlds as she creates work that ranges from a realist style of painting to digital photo collages to wearable accessories made from reclaimed materials. A master of many mediums (painting, illustration, portraying, caricatures, cartoons, comics) ENRIQUE BRAVO’s sharp critiques of the ruling regime in Venezuela brought him to Canada in 2018. Originally from Panama and now based in Toronto, multidisciplinary artist JACQUIE COMRIE celebrates colour as the universal language of emotions and a tool powerful enough to repair not only urban spaces but also our minds. CÉSAR MORRISS is an innovative young Peruvian artist whose art is characterized by his mastery of color and use of unconventional formats and compositions, which are inspired by female sensuality. A second-generation Latin American portrait painter (Costa Rica & Cuba), Toronto’s MICHELLE PERAZA returns to Colores with her large-scale portraits of individuals who are close to her, but whose ethnicity often has excluded them from representation.
