Francisco Mejia-Guinand, Colombia, b. 1964

Born in the vibrant city of Bogotá, Colombia, in the year 1964, Francisco Mejía-Guinand stands as a distinguished architect and visual artist, currently based in the cultural epicenter of New York.

Mejía-Guinand first emerged onto the artistic scene during the 1990s, earning acclaim for his unique fusion of architecture, sculpture, and painting—a testament to his innovative approach to the creative realm.

His educational journey saw him pursuing Architecture at the Faculty of Architecture and Design of the Pontifical Xavierian University in Bogotá, culminating in the awarding of his Degree in Architecture in 1988.

Francisco Mejía-Guinand has not only honed his artistic craft but also generously shared his knowledge and expertise with the academic community. He has imparted his wisdom in various Colombian Universities and delivered enlightening lectures at revered institutions such as the Museo Nacional de Colombia and Biblioteca Virgilio Barco.

Throughout his illustrious career, Mejía-Guinand has dedicated his efforts to the exploration of abstract concepts, continuously expanding his spatial and temporal approach to the realm of sculpture. Within the vibrant landscape of New York, his creative focus has been primarily centered on the meticulous arrangement of tetrahedral systems. This serves as a testament to Mejía-Guinand's profound interest in equilibrium and the juxtaposition of positive and negative fractal space. His artistic inquiry delves into the realm of mathematical self-similarity and the intricate world of multidimensional geometry.

Notably, Mejía-Guinand has garnered significant recognition for his geometric sculptures that find inspiration in the realms of mathematics, Russian Avant-garde, Sacred Geometry, and Origami principles. These captivating works of art come to life through the use of diverse materials, including bronze, aluminum, stainless steel, titanium, brass, copper tubing, cast aluminum, and even precious metals.

Beyond sculpture, Mejía-Guinand's artistic prowess extends into the realm of large-scale abstract oil painting. His canvases are meticulously built up through layer upon layer of oil paint, enhanced by the addition of charcoal mark-making. This particular style bears the influence of iconic artists like Willem de Kooning and Joan Mitchell.

The extensive body of work crafted by Francisco Mejía-Guinand, encompassing drawings, collages, paintings, sculptures, and architectural models, has graced numerous solo and group exhibitions across Colombia, the United States, Europe, and Asia.
In 2003, the Art Museum of the Americas hosted Mejía-Guinand's inaugural solo museum exhibition, aptly titled "Francisco Mejía-Guinand: The Order of an Inner World." This landmark event underscored the artist's profound impact on the art world.
Other solo exhibitions featuring his exceptional talents include "Francisco Mejía-Guinand:
The Triumph of the Painting" at The Embassy of Colombia in Washington D.C. during March 25 to April 24, 2014, as well as "Francisco Mejía-Guinand's Geometrics Jewelry" at the Latin American Art Gallery PROMO-ARTE in Tokyo. Francisco Mejía-Guinand's artistic legacy is further immortalized through the inclusion of his paintings in the permanent collections of renowned institutions such as the Art Museum of Americas, El Fons d'Art Contemporani del Consell de Mallorca, Es Baluard Museum in Palma de Mallorca, Spain, and MAMBo in Bogotá, Colombia.
