Juan Mejia (b. 1965) is a contemporary artist from Medellín, Colombia. Working primarily in sculpture, Mejia creates three-dimensional works that play with space and form. These frequently minimalistic works reflect his training as an architect in their innovative approach to design. The artist has worked in many mediums, including sintra- a plastic material from which he carved the Signos series- and rusted steel, emblematic of Origami, a series of folded sculptures.
His most recent notable solo expositions include Genius Loci (2016) at Galería Arte Consult, Panamá; The Intangible Origin (2014) at CERO Gallery, Bogotá, Colombia (2014); Sensorial Thickness (2014) at Tolima’s Art Museum, Ibague, Colombia; and Polymorphisms: Barks, Radiant Forests and Totems (2013) at Gallery of the Central Library Universidad Pontificia Bolivariana, Medellín, Colombia / ETRA Fine Art Gallery, Miami, USA / LGM International Art, Bogotá / Knoerle & Baettig Contemporary Fine Art, Winterthur, Switzerland.
