About

Colombian, b. 1974   —   Tatiana Arocha is a visual artist from Bogotá, Colombia based in Brooklyn, NY. The daughter of one of Colombia’s leading anthropologists and environmentalists, Arocha grew up in the midst of nature, camping since childhood with her family across the diverse ecological regions of Colombia. But it was the Ensenada de Utria in the jungles of el Choco which ultimately shaped her artistic worldview. She has understood since she was very young that nature needs to be explored in order to find a real connection, and flora and fauna should be encountered in their natural habitats to be fully grasped. Arocha’s art practice involves creating layered detail, graphic compositions, and application of digital techniques learned in her earlier professional career as a graphic designer and illustrator. She has exhibited in the U.S., U.K., Italy, and Colombia, with solo shows at Sugar Hill’s Children Museum for Arts & Storytelling, Yale University, and The Queens Botanical Gardens, and group exhibitions in New York at Wave Hill, BRIC, and The Wassaic Project, as well as the Lightbox Exhibition Project for MTA in the NYC subway from 2017-2019. In 2019, she received the Sustainable Arts Foundation individual award for mixed media. She has participated in LABverde Art Immersion Program located in the Brazilian Amazon, Centro Selva in the Peruvian Amazon, Arquetopia in Puebla, Mexico, and closer to home at Wassaic Project in New York, and Zea Mays Printmaking Residency in Massachusetts.
