Visual artist

Camilo Toro, a Colombian visual artist, is, since 2012, spreading his neo-figurative art with cubist and expressionistic traits all over Germany. Camilo expresses his beliefs through his artworks and shares the following features: a (South-American) expressiveness of color, slightly disfigured subjects with sexual, innocent an threatening connotations, significant surface texture.

 

Eleonora

Camilo Toro


Camilo still believes, by focusing his attention on the expressive possibilities inherent in the medium of painting as such namely the relationship between the image plane and the image space, figuration and abstraction, form and colour, that painting has both something magical and something realistic to say. Especially in the exhibited work Eleonora he expands the form and content of the medium in a way that raises a number of questions about the ambiguous human condition, identity and the place of the individual in the world.The background of the painting is characterized by the absence of spatial depth, repetition of patterns and the flattening of perspective. When studying the apparently rusted Eleonora, the childish lady in the foreground, we notice that she exists in the cross field between expressive banality and a mysterious dreamy depth.
