Original artworks, prints, exhibition posters, monographs, books, collectibles.
Echavarria was a writer for thirty years before turning to fine arts to make use of the pictorial and documentary qualities of this medium for his socio-political concerns. In his photo series and video films he deals with the power of the drug cartel and various forms of violence in Columbia that have become after fifty years of civil war shockingly normal.
