Time changes, minute by minute... In each painting there is no repeatable traces in a certain year, transiting on the long journey of emotions. Yesterday was present and today is past. The infinite creativity is riding the horse of time, footprints embodied in unrepeatable symbols and colors, forming part of the great human collection and traversing, with my deep and ethereal message, the soul of the beholder.
“I always say that I can tell his painting apart… He has cultivated and refined his own style during a long and permanent career in so many exhibitions, in the most unusual places in the world. Using a palette of very clear color tones and a summarized drawing, Olmedo Quimbita stopped painting the Andean world a long time ago, changing his gaze to the tropics, its inhabitants and their daily life, as well as to the birds and foliage of our coast”.
