John is an Art director and designer from Bogotá, Colombia based in Miami, FL since 2012. His work has been evolving from commercial projects in editorial design, illustration and concept design into a more personal and artistic exploration of the identity in the information society we live nowadays.

John uses digital art, illustration and interaction design to talk about the role of the portrait in the digital era, and how this one has been affected by technology. His work is set right in the middle of the intersection between real and virtual world where the image is not anymore a flat representation of an individual but a complex information system evolving in real time allowing us to create new identities an multi-personalities.

This body of work is still in progress and will continue its journey with new projects and exhibitions. Right now his last project 'Not There' is been exhibited at Fu Gallery in Little River Miami.

In the mean time John works as worldwide Art Director for Ultra Music Festival in Miami, where, together with his team creates the visual identity of the brand for more than 19 countries.
