One of the most interesting names in the Latin American street art scene is Gleo, a young Colombian born and raised in Cali. The artist is able to express her identity and her point of view on global problems, using coloured illustrations, oil paintings and murals. Gleo has travelled around South America for several years and has now made his name in street art capitals such as Barcelona and Mexico City.

Her works are inspired by the popular legends and folklore of his country and use various pictorial references to create surreal images and tribal characters who wear ornamental masks with big eyes and tattoos, becoming icons of symbolism, power and wisdom.

She has created a unique universe and visual language that are beginning to expand throughout the world.
