LAMB Arts is pleased to announce two solo exhibitions by two leading Colombian artists Jim Amaral and Valentino Cortázar. Jim Amaral: Quote Unquote presents 24 surreal watercolour paintings that depict erotic and playful floating figures. Valentino Cortázar’s Cave Project: Diario debuts pages of Cortázar’s diary that contain works that were produced during his travels from Deia to Ibiza. Both shows offer an interesting insight into the surrealist worlds of two mature Colombian artists, through new and old bodies of work.
