Milena Arango

Milena Arango was born in Cali, Colombia in 1978. Because of her mothers’ studies, Milena grew up travelling in her childhood and later as an adult decided that was the turn that she needed in her work.  She graduated from Visual Arts in Pontificia Universidad Javeriana in 2001 and then took a journey in theater for few years.

She’s a passionate and dedicated artist, always finding new ways to keep her work dynamic and motivated.  To keep this up she travels and takes different art residencies around the world to keep her inspiration high.  In her latest years her work has been followed by psychoanalytic therapy which relates her relationship with her mother and her communication with nature.
