Andrés & Valentina Layos | Grandir ensemble

January 20, 2018

Galerie C.O.A is pleased to announce its new upcoming exhibition titled “Grandir ensemble”, presented from February 1st to March 3rd, 2018. 
Andrés Layos (Medellín, 1986) is a Colombian artist who has been notably working with his young daughter, Valentina (Medellín, 2007), from the age of 3. An unparalleled draughtsman, Andrés starts drawings which Valentina finishes, and vice-versa. She comes up with the subject matter and oversees the creation; she guides her dad, and he acts as her collaborator. The two of them create drawings that are both playful and touching, and whose subject matter ranges from both real-life and fictional stories, memories, to Valentina’s favourite animals.
The naïve markings, careful traces, as well as the scribbles and textures of their work evokes the characteristically child-like freedom to be oneself. This series of artworks invites the viewer to discover the depth of the father-daughter bond, the profusion of love and art, and the transfer of knowledge, which are all shared within a single graphic space. 
The vernissage will take place at the gallery on Thursday, February 1st, from 5 PM to 8 PM.
