Mario Arroyave’s interest in photography began empirically at age 13. While living in Costa Rica and Colombia, his vocation continued to grow alongside his studies and work in systems engineering and advertising. In 2010 he launched his career as an artist, exhibiting publicly for the first time in Bogotá.
Since then, his career has been on the rise. In the past few years, Arroyave has attained national recognition and established himself as one of the young artists whose work revolves around photographic languages. He has participated in solo and group shows in numerous cities including Bogotá, Medellín, Lima, Sao Paulo, Miami, Dallas, New York and Tokyo.
Arroyave’s work stems from the individual’s reinvention when impacted by his experiences. It is a work that detaches people from their defining daily interactions and places them in vacant spaces where time disappears, making them relate to each other in a different manner.
“Timeline,” the artist’s most extense and recognized series, reflects this temporary non-existence, generating a notion of time-space from interactions of people or objects that inhabit or interact in a given space. In this way vast landscapes are created that expand said space as a result of the accumulation of the interactions that are generated within it, and these, in turn, are synthesized in a single timeless moment.
