Oscar Murillo  (Colombian, 1986) 

whitespace
Oscar Murillo (Colombian, b.1986) is a painter and installation artist whose work incorporates a variety of different media and techniques, including text, recycled materials, and fragments collected from his studio. Murillo earned his BFA in 2007 from the University of Westminster in London, and completed his MFA in 2012 at the Royal College of Art. Murillo's large-scale paintings often appear chaotic and spontaneous, but are, in fact, meticulously comprised of roughly made, stitched canvases. His paintings, video art, installations, and performances evoke themes of community, inspired by the artist’s cross-cultural ties to London and his native Colombia.

Murillo has had numerous solo and group exhibitions at museums and galleries around the world, including a 2014 show at The Mistake Room in Los Angeles. In 2013, the South London Gallery held the artist's first major solo exhibition in the UK. In 2012, he created new paintings during a five-week residency at the Rubell Family Collection in Miami, which were shown later that year as part of the artist’s first solo exhibition in the United States.

The artist lives and works in London.
