10 Latin American artists you need to watch

From Mexico to Patagonia, check out the work of these Latin American

It’s time to look south and see that the artistic talent hides (or we haven’t been paying enough attention to it) in Latin American countries. Talented artists with interesting proposals. For this reason, ALL CITY CANVAS selected 10 Latin American artists to support local talent.


Ledania (Colombia)

With a background in Visual Arts, Ledania creates complex, colorful murals with a touch of magic. Diana Ordoñez’s paintings are found in Chapinero, a town in Bogota, Colombia. In addition to urban art, Ledania works with photography, graphic design, as well as advertising. In case you were wondering: her pseudonym is a mix between the character from the Greek mythology, Leda —who was seduced by Zeus— and her first name, Diana.

Gris One (Colombia)

“The artwork is yours while you’re creating it. Once you’re done, it belongs to everyone, or no one, or to the streets, or to the people who have it on a canvas.” Colombian artist Gris One’s work is characterized by typographies among abstract geometric planes. Thus, his paintings and murals evoke the strength of nature and the chaos of the metropolis.
