We are really enjoying the oil paintings of Cesar Biojo this morning, a mixture of realism and dream-like sequencing that is pretty great to take in. The Colombian painter recently finishing a PhD program at the University of Barcelona, and has a series of portraits and nudes that we have to show you today...

I am currently an Art student at the Pontifical Xavierian University in Bogota, Colombia and from that aside I'm a small chick, very small, who lives the way small people do and that eats and create small things, that it also has a purpose, a very healthy purpose, fight and bitter the existence of those who are different, the tall ones, and with that I mean, conquer the world to then have the power over the pituitary gland of the human race...

Not using pencils, but literally utilizing pencils as the actual materials in which to make the sculptural portraits. The Colombia born, Miami based artist, Federico Uribe, created the series Pencilism: Sculptures, where the sculptures come alive with multi-layered expressions and textures.

Just one grab, and this thing will topple. Colombian artist, Miler Lagos, created this "semi book igloo," titled Home, in an installation in 2011 at MagnanMetz Gallery in New York. No glue, nothing holding the books together, just neatly and perfectly stacked so as not to fall over on itself. And with a name like Home, it feels very comforting if you want to read The Hunger Games trilogy amongst other novels.

These are great, hyper-realistic illustrations by Columbian illustrator Cesar Del Valle to begin with. But what makes them even more interesting is that Del Valled adapts the characters to their environment, as if they are real people navigating through the gallery world.
