My name is Teresa Currea from Bogotá, Colombia. I was born in August 1985, and studied fine arts in Colombian Nacional University, and graduate in 2008. Since that moment it begins my path as an independent artist, exploring drawing and paper construction in my work. In my pieces, I use the idea of diorama, as a way of changing a bidimensional drawing in a tridimensional scenario, using surrealism like inspiration. Lately my work is attached to images and forms from Japan because I lived there for a bit more then a year during 2020.
