"Knowledge can be made not only with science, but with stories as well" -Roberto Calasso
Juan Camilo Sierra Zapata, graphic designer, illustrator, creator, and thinker in constant growth. Graduated from the Jorge Tadeo Lozano University (Colombia) in 2017. I aspire to become an Art Director in digital media, as well as manage my own projects. Create artistic and design collectives, cultural events, learning spaces and contribute to human growth through visual communication.
I am intrigued by the creation of stories and messages that feed the mind through the image as a narrative vehicle. Stories that dislocate everyday life, that talk about what happens in the world and its crudeness, but also the beauty of life and knowledge. I am interested in cultural areas, history, arts, literature, science, music, theater, or any related medium where I can give my contribution to the construction of humanity. Currently working as freelance, also doing personal projects such as independent publications, graphic novel, video game design or applications, illustration, writing, among others.
