In a diverse practice that has included photography, drawing, and installation, Armando Andrade Tudela examines points of cultural intersection, including accidental occurrences of Western modernist aesthetics in South America and Tiki culture as it exists in the popular American imagination. In his book and slide installation, Camion (2004), Tudela presents photographic images of customized goods trucks in and around Lima, Peru, and skeletal roadside structures once used to display massive advertisements—both of which, with their minimal designs and abstract geometry, appear to echo Constructivism. In Inka Snow (2006), a book and architectural model of a community that is seemingly built within giant lines of cocaine, Tudela alludes to Peru’s famous Nazca Lines and obliquely refers to histories of migration and colonization in South America, which planted the seed of the cocaine industry. Tudela’s work frequently references the Tropicalia movement, and he considers former members of the 1960s Brazilian avant-garde such as Hélio Oiticica to be major influences on his work.
