Henry Ortiz is a visual artist with anthropology of art studies and a master's degree candidate in art & education. His project, which has a multidisciplinary scope, focuses on the study of pre-Columbian technologies such as basketry, textiles and ceramic. He researches issues of ritual, multiculturalism and education in the South American territory. For the development of contemporary art he specializes in the use of various plant fibers with a sustainable approach. As a result, he has explored various languages and materialities, including graphic art, installations and South American indigenous crafts. He intends to call into question the hegemonic categories in which the local arts are placed, as well as the liminal fields of these practices concerning the fine arts or media that have been approved by the academic establishment.
