  • Catalogue Essay

    Columbian-born Ever Astudillo used photography as a first step towards creating his large pencil drawings. Astudillo’s black-and-white photographs of the Columbian city of Cali highlight not only his concern with urban development and marginal street life but also his ability to capture the city’s unique afternoon light.

  • Artist Biography

    Ever Astudillo

    Colombian • 1948 - 2015

    Ever Astudillo’s photographs served as preparatory studies for his large pencil drawings. Through his lens, he explored the urban landscape of the Colombian city of Cali, depicting life as carried out within the city’s working-class neighborhoods. After studying at the Escuela Departamental de Artes Plásticas, Cali and at the Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México, he worked as Professor of Drawing and Painting at the Universidad del Cauca, Popayán. Astudillo’s work has been exhibited in numerous institutions, including Museo La Tertulia, Cali and Museo Rayo, Roldanillo.
