BIOGRAPHY

Johanna Calle, Bogotá, Colombia, b. 1965

Johanna Calle earned her BA in Art History from Los Andes University in Bogotá, Colombia and received her MFA from the Chelsea College of Art at the London Institute.

Her exploration of drawing and pushing the medium into a wide variety of techniques are at the heart of her formal practice. Her method of line making is that of a physical approach–one that includes wire, stitching, text, along with the more traditional use of ink and pencil. “To me, the possibility of constructing a drawing with other material captivates me. I found in them an ideal medium for experimentation.” – Johanna Calle

Calle’s work can be found in prestigious collections such as the Museum of Modern Art, New York City, NY; the Museum of Fine Arts Houston, TX; and the National Museum of Colombia, Bogotá.
