About Jorge Esteban Zapata Garces

I have a Bachelor's Degree from the National University of Columbia and an MA from the University of Northern Iowa. Currently I am a second year MFA student at the University of Calgary.

Antioquia

I create collages and paintings using images from magazines and newspapers. By assembling images, I want to decontextualize its significance. Cultural meaning and identity have become more diffused, vague and complex concepts.

Merz

I create collages and paintings using images from different sources. By assembling images from different contexts, I debase its function and cultural meaning. Cultural identity has become more diffused as a consequence of immigration.
