Santiago Tamayo Soler he/him (Bogotá, Colombia 1990) is a Montréal based multidisciplinary artist working mainly in video, with a background in performance art and film. He holds a BFA in Studio Arts from Concordia University.

 

Santiago is interested in world-building and juxtaposing digitally built locations with archival footage. To give life to these universes, he creates stories ranging from fictional to historical. Through the use of multiple narrative devices, Tamayo Soler proposes an eco-political examination of Latin America from a diasporic perspective, giving a home to immigrant and queer stories that suggest a radical futuristic fantasy.
