Sebastián Vallejo’s paintings are inspired by the light and colors of the Caribbean, where organic and inorganic forms collide and transpose each other creating a visually engaging display of light and form. “The works make allusions to the classical Apollonian-Dionysian split, where presentation and negation, organization and disorder, become ever-present,” the artist affirms.
