Carlos Jacanamijoy, the son of a shaman, is the first Colombian artist from an indigenous background to win international recognition. Gifted with an extraordinary skill in the use of oils, his pictures are full of color, reflections, and movement. In this beautiful volume, it is evident that Jacanamijoy’s original works embrace both nature and the heritage of his ancestors.
