Olga de Amaral

She was born on June 14, 1932. Olga, studied architectural design at the Colegio Mayor de Cundinamarca, which allowed her to come into contact with two disciplines that have been her reference points: design and architecture. In 1954, when the new artistic currents wer asserting themselves in Colombia, she went to study textiles and design at the Cranbrook Academy of Art in Michigan, which gave a professional basis to a practice that she had already appreciated in the Colombian peasants and that later become her main means of operation in the international artistic field.
In 1971, she won the first prize at the XXII National Salon of Artists, which meant an opening of the country’s events and institutions to the crossing of languages and modes, which began to manifest itself with the multiplication of formal options. In 1973, she was awarded the Guggenheim Fellowship and in 1972 the first prize of the Third Coltejer Art Biennial in Medellín, which showed the reception that her work had begun to have in circuits other than the decorative arts or the crafts itself. . Olga de Amaral later made numerous exhibitions in different countries and has been characterized since the sixties for having a constant work, with a notable presence in international galleries and museums.
