Jessica Angel is a visual artist and arts educator. Her recent projects take over architectural interiors, exploring the possibility of visual illusion and space transformation with the use of perspective. She address a nontraditional experience of space, using mural painting, large scale drawing interventions and wallpapering, creating immersive environments that bring people closer to imagination and to the experience of unconventional sensations, enabling a disorienting encounter with reality.
Her last solo project in 2014, at the AC Institute in NYC, enabled forms of collaboration among sciences, philosophy, music, art and new media. She was invited to represent Colombia as an artist in residence at the 2015 Vancouver Biennale to continue these collaborative and socially engaging endevours. While living in New York City Jessica has been awarded the BRIC Media Arts Fellowship and the Cooper Union Summer Residency (2012), City Walls (2010) with the Brooklyn Arts Council and BOFFO-NY Artist in Residence (2009). She has exhibited solo at Juan Salas Gallery (2013), the Museum of Modern Art of Bucaramanga (2008), at Casas Riegner Gallery (2006 and 2009) amongst other. Her work has been showcased in group shows both locally and abroad in cities like Bogota, New York, Miami, Washington, La Paz and Mexico City.
