Bio

Antonio Caro (born 1950, Bogotá, Colombia) is a contemporary artist known for using iconic conceptualizations and images that often make political comments about his country of origin. Since 1970, Caro has built a career that, according to the categorizations of history and criticism, denotes an authentic example of conceptual art in Colombia. Caro's art can be classified as politically charged pop art. In 1998, Caro was awarded the prestigious Guggenheim Fellowship.
