"La guajira y su pesada carga"

Amilkar Ariza
A creator of forms

“All Ariza's work, without aesthetic ties, rich in its chromatic conception and its enormous expressive capacity, due to an supernatural impulse that in many occasions has taken the Master to pay tribute to God, as a supreme inspiration of his creative gift". Ariza´s work has been influenced by two forces: His catholic belief and his Spaniard and Arab ancestry”

(José Luis Díaz Granados; critic)
