Catalogue Note

“I think in what I do… I endeavour to strive for a sense of authenticity...dirt is real and is everywhere; it is accessible whether in the streets of London or in the villages of Colombia, dirt is democratic and free, so a dirty canvas is an extension or a reality even if you romanticise it.”

Oscar Murillo in conversation with Catherine Wood in: ‘Oscar Murillo: Dirty Painting’, Mousse 35, October-November 2012, p. 109.
