Meet the Artist
Ana Buitrago is an artist and designer from Bogota, Colombia. She has a BFA from the Art Institute of Chicago and currently pursuing an MFA in ceramics at the University of Arkansas. Her practice focuses on ceramic objects inspired by Pre-Columbian cultures and modern infrastructure.
Buitrago is interested in challenging the viewer by manipulating materials such as clay to create a new understanding of form and surface. Interrogating what it means to live with an object, Buitrago transforms sculptural forms into functional pieces with an emphasis on geometry, symmetry, and balance Ana has exhibited nationally and internationally in Belgium, France, Netherlands, Ecuador, Mexico, and Colombia.
