  • Artist Biography

    Sergio Trujillo

    Colombian • 1947

    Born in Colombia, Sergio Trujillo initially studied architecture and later graduated as a graphic designer from the Universidad de Bogotá Jorge Tadeo Lozano. He began working with photography in the 1960s, and in 1981, he received a Kodak Colombiana scholarship to complete a multi-image production course in Mexico City. His series Muros Colombianos (1972-79) illustrates beauty found in debris, capturing Colombian society through photographs of torn posters on walls in public places. Trujillo’s work has been exhibited in institutions worldwide, including Museo de Arte Moderno de Bogotá; Museo Amparo, Puebla; and Fondation Cartier pour l’art contemporain, Paris.
