Gallery page for artist Luisa Restrepo.






Luisa Restrepo, is a glass artist and designer born in Colombia and now working in México. After concluding her studies in Medellin and later in Wolverhampton, England, she founded her studio, “El taller” in México City in 2005. Her work examines rhythm, pattern, proportion and excess. She moves from objects, to installations and performance and strives to use different mediums and means in the understanding of the material and how we transform it and relate to it. Supported by scholarships she has attended various workshops, taught at Pilchuck, Xaquixe amongst other places and has been part of the Northland’s and Wheaton’s residency programs. She has also won the first Colombian Glass Biennale and has shown both nationally and internationally.
