Cam Can

Biography

I was born in Bogota, Colombia in 1986 and moved to Miami, Florida at the age of 13. I received my BFA in studio art, with a Minor in Art History, from Florida International University in 2016.

Working with different mediums, I participated in numerous activities and art shows, such as The Wall of Respect, a Patchwork Quilt of the Art during Black History Month, 2014. My work was also included in the Emerging Artist exhibition at Miami Dade College for which I received an Honorable Mention; Sculpture is Sculpture during Art Basel 2015; and FIU’s MBUS Gallery in a group show entitled 19/8.9

Statement

My process is based on important aspects such as creating forms with clay allowing me to make abstract shapes and explores how gravity works into the forms, create textures and surfaces that translate into details, and the provocative aspect of getting close and feel the texture, incorporating steel, copper and aluminum wire gives a touch energy movement and creates that these forms belongs to a certain space. I am influenced on behavioral episodes, mood sensation, and life events. Personal situations along with the material and the way of controlling the surfaces evoke my point across. The look creates attractiveness, beauty, and recognitions of interactions. Insanity, one of the qualities on my pieces allows me to bring diversity of textures, depth to the pieces.
