  • About the Artist
  • Curriculum Vitae

"Since the year 2013, I have been trying to develop in my works the concept of two-dimensional space on an empty space.

In my paintings, the stretcher is not just the support of the painting, but it is an integral part of the work.

The empty space between the canvas and the stretcher gives the work a three-dimensional dimension, but the work remains a two-dimensional painting.

I began developing this concept with abstract painting; nevertheless, between 2017-2018, I made a series of figurative paintings on a conventional support, in 2018, I incorporated figurative painting into the concept of two-dimensional space on the empty space. "

Walter Anchico was born in Buenaventura, Colombia. He lives and works in France since 2007. He studied fine arts in Spain and the United States.
