Bolivian Canadian artist Marcelo Suaznabar cites Hieronymus Bosch, European Surrealism and a childhood spent in the arid yet “magical” Altiplano region of southern Bolivia as influences upon his creative practice. Drawn from his unconscious mind, Suaznabar’s seemingly playful paintings feature human-animal hybrids in allegorical settings, with allusions to life’s existential mysteries. In addition, he makes reference to environmental destruction brought on by human greed and short-sightedness.
