Figurative artist Fernando Uhía (b. Bogotá, Colombia 1967) emerged as an artist in the economic boom of Colombia during the 1990's. The same "economic and commercial" elements of society are strongly evident in his artwork: commercial promiscuity, open capital market to the highest bidder of "swallow" (unstable) foreign investments, not caring which country they come from, butterfly effect of unintended consequences, exaggeration of package over contents, a and preponderance of aesthetics over ethics. "All of which is manifested in Uhía's artworks of multiple visual appearance, unjustified and of sudden changes of medium or technique, paintings that are painted alone or with a zombie look, serial by the serial, exaggeration of visual effects and license to seize or clone works by other artists or phrases of art critics."
