Nicolás Vizcaíno Sánchez is an afro-descendant artist based in Bogotá/Colombia, whose work spans multimedia installations, critical writing, editorial practice and curatorial and socially engaged projects on the counter-narratives that distort and fight hegemonic power structures.

In 2019, he co-curated the exhibition Colombia 200 años in the Bogotá international book fair. He participated in the group show at EVA International Ireland’s biennial, in Limerick/Ireland, in 2018, and had his first gallery show Abrecaminos in Bogotá at Valenzuela Klenner. He also participated in other book fairs including the Art Book Fair in Bergen/Norway, and the Feira Plana in São Paulo/Brazil, in 2015. In the last five years his practice has addressed the relationship between art and political affairs, through work both on independent local projects and with institutions such as Colombia’s National Center for Historical Memory and the International Organization for Migration.

Recently, Nicolás was made a mentee within the C& magazine Mentoring Program. In 2018, he received a scholarship from the Los Andes Peruvian University (UPLA)/Peru, where he is currently completing an MA in history. He received two BA degrees in art and political science from the same institution in 2015.
