Pablo Guzman is a painter based in Medellin, Columbia who creates playful paintings that push the boundaries between the subject matter and the viewer. Guzman paints youthful figures dressed in jeans, t-shirts, and sweat pants, who look like they have just walked off the sidewalk into his canvas. He sets these figures in simple scenes on the canvas, and he often juxtaposes the canvas and figures with the walls and objects in the viewers real three dimensional space. These intriguing paintings layer simplicity and complexity, and traditional painterly techniques with modern subjects and ideas.
