About Art Latina

Art Latina was founded March 15th in an apartment building in Medellin Colombia. JD Spinoza and Luiz Centenaro shared an apartment there and were amazed by Alejandra Serna paintings, and talked for hours about how hard it is for an Artist to be successful in Medellin and in Latin America in general. They decided to put their heads together to help her share her Art with the world, and soon many of her friends wanted to join the team, and that is how the Art Latina community was born.

After talking to all these artists and just talking to people who lives in Medellin, we came up with a conclusion, people here loves Art, you can see it on the streets everywhere you go, on every wall, every park, every corner of the city, it is amazing. But the reality is that many artists can't afford art supplies, when minimum wages are $200 a month you can't even afford a painting to support these talented artists, and the very few that can afford it, go to one of the many galleries in the city that wont give these artists a chance. We are here to share their stories, to share their Art.
