Browsing around today I found the following Link (link is dead now 🙁 ), and then continue to read.
I am very proud of being Colombian, sure I am pretty much an American now when it comes to the way I live and I love America as much if not more than most natives. But I am very proud of my roots and if some day I have kids they will learn about my culture for sure. Turcios is my latest finding, Colombian talent is one of the things that makes me the proudest of being Colombian. From Botero to Rayo and their paintings to Gabo and his Magical Realism all those works of art make me proud to say where I am from.
It is difficult to explain to people that have only heard about Colombia via the mass media, that Colombia is a lot more than the country where most of the US drugs come from. But pointing people to works of arts made by Colombians, makes them realize that we do a lot more for the world than drugs and coffee.
Turcios is my latest finding, and I hope you enjoy his work as much as I did.
