Yesid Gomez, aka Azzurro, is a Contemporary Visual Artist, with a philosophical concept that transforms colors into poetically surreal shapes and movements, forming a colorful mix of metaphors and life-like compositions.
Perhaps, thinking of childhood and more recent memories of idle drifting freedom that more often seems to elude us in adulthood, Maestro Azzurro remembers dreams, people, and the color of youth in his native Colombia, South America.
In his youth, while growing in the colorful and Andino city of Medellin, Colombia, Maestro Azzurro immersed himself in the sounds, smells, tastes, and feels of his home life. Art was the motivation to start an artistic career at an early age pushing him to get away from the struggle and violence that young men experienced at that time. He wanted to replicate what he saw and felt by painting in the streets where he realized that art would become an extension of his expression for life.
Today, Maestro Azzurro has come full circle by drawing and creating upon both real and imaginary experiences, a visual delight of form, texture, and reflection.
“I believe that the power of art can create solutions to many of our problems. Art brings people together, the symbolism and the belief of the idea will cause people to reflect on the message of peace, making the world a better place for all of us” Yesid Gomez, Azzurro.

Wilfer Buitrago, aka Bugo, began to discover and apply his passion for art from a very early age. He has always admired the perfectly imperfect aspects of human anatomy, allowing him to characterize his work through the nude human body and the materials naturally altered by time and interaction. Within his creations, Maestro Bugo transmits not only his feelings and experiences but the strengths and vulnerabilities of humans.
His artistic search for identity and style lead him to work with many metals and sculpting materials. His ingenuity and curiosity have pushed him to create and develop his unique sculpting clay, giving him immense artistic versatility, enacting his ability to interlock history while creating art that would be different to any other artist. In his modern artwork, Maestro Bugo enjoys mixing different materials, shapes, and colors with all that the human body offers.
Medellín, Colombia is his birth town. Today, and for over 20 years, Lancaster County, Pennsylvania has been his home and the place where has continued to create and develop his skills. Maestro Bugo is a man of few words who uses art and his sculptures as his preferred way of communication.
