Melissa Aristizábal reinvents the beauty of sacred and religious imagery based on antiquated cultures. Seeking relationships between different religions, sacred geometry and connections that exist in the psychology of the feminine with the magnificence of the universe. She places some of these feminine characters within diverse media and contexts ranging from oil paintings to large-scale murals. Considering the power of icons this reinterpretation of the sacred has no intention of being profane instead it is an attempt to build a reinterpretation, and in this way enunciate one of the constants of the human condition – mankind’s enslaving of themselves by their own inventions. Melissa is an artist, muralist and freelance graphic designer who graduated from LaSalle College institute based in Bogotá, Colombia. She has exhibited at the Latin American Art Festival, has been published in Vice Magazine on various occasions, and has collaborated with brands such as Diesel, Swatch, Motorola, among others.
