Santiago Tamayo Soler he/him (Bogotá, Colombia 1990) is a Montréal based interdisciplinary artist working mainly in video, with a background in performance art and film. He holds a BFA in Studio Arts from Concordia University (Montréal, QC).
Santiago is interested in world building and uses the diverse narrative devices available to him through an adherence to a digital approach to production and creation. Specifically, he develops narrative through the juxtaposition of digitally built locations with real footage, and the overlay of fictionally ambiguous accounts with eco-political examination. Tamayo Soler’s scenes give home to Latin American, immigrant, and queer stories of a radical futuristic fantasy.
