About Oscar Murillo

Oscar Murillo’s large-scale paintings imply action, performance, and chaos, but are in fact methodically composed of rough-hewn, stitched canvases that often incorporate fragments of text as well as studio debris such as dirt and dust. His paintings, video works, and performances are tied to a notion of community, stemming from the artist’s cross-cultural ties to London, where he currently lives and works, and Colombia, where he was born in 1986. For his ongoing project Frequencies, created in collaboration with members of his family and political scientist Clara Dublanc, Murillo will visit schools across the globe where canvases temporarily affixed to classroom desks will register young students’ creative and critical thought processes. The project aims to offer cross-cultural and social insights into youth communities around the world.
