Oscar Murillo was born in La Paila, Colombia, in 1986, and lives and works in London. His paintings, video works, and actions are tied to a notion of community stemming from the artist’s cross-cultural ties to diverse cities. His work has been the subject of solo presentations at Haus der Kunst, Munich, Yarat Art Centre, Baku, Azerbaijan, Nouveau Musée National Monaco, and Museo de Arte, Universidad Nacional de Colombia, Bogotá.
