Alexis Duque


Alexis Duque’s (b. 1971) paintings and drawings are centered in depicting slums and shantytowns, a social phenomenon highly characteristic of cities in many developing countries and that also include urban centers in his native Colombia.

Lacking ceiling and facades, these precarious structures overflow with crowded objects and furniture, to form one continuous urban sprawl. Challenging constructed responses to these images, by triggering a double take in the way the viewer perceive them, Duque’s works explore perceptions of innocence and violence, transgression and balance.

Born in Medellin, Colombia, the artist currently lives and works New York. His work has been exhibited at El Museo del Barrio, New York, NY; The Museum of Latin American Art (MOLAA), Long Beach, CA; The Drawing Center, New York, NY; Champion Contemporary, Austin, TX; Rudolf Gallery, Amsterdam, The Netherlands; Praxis International Gallery, New York, NY/Miami, FL/Buenos Aires, Argentina.
