Maria Jose Espindola, also known as itaartista, is a young Colombian visual artist based in Bogota D.C (who is also part of the artist collective ETRA). After having the opportunity to travel and study in Buenos Aires, Argentina, she found that collage and visual expressions is the perfect way to share her dreams, feelings, emotions, and thoughts about topics such as the relationship between body and nature, body and daily-life. Itaartista enjoys providing spaces to discuss the importance of valuing our bodies and how this affects our mental health in multiple dimensions.
These are some of her most significant pieces and some descriptions provided by the artist.
