Read about Felix Angel
Felix Angel is one of Colombia’s most renowned artists and holds an extensive career. He began his artistic practice during his high school years and continues to do so to this day spanning a career of almost 50 years. His work is diverse in techniques and, at times, controversial in subjects. Angel moved to the United States, to Washington D.C., where he worked as a curator for the Art Museum of the Americas from 1978-1989, and then joined the InterAmerican Development Bank Cultural Center as a director since the year 2000. The decision to move stemmed from the rejection his artwork received due to its controversial topics, not only in paintings but in printed media as well. His work portrays different topics such as jockeys on their horses, sportsmen, and bicycles, in mediums such as oil paint, collage and serigraphs, and others. His work has been presented and is part of public collections such as the Art Museum of the Americas at the Organization of American States (Washington, D.C.) The Bass Museum (Miami, FL), El Museo del Barrio (New York, NY), Essex Collection of Latin American Art, University of Essex (Essex, London).
