Born 1977. Lives and works in Medellin, Colombia.Nector's work approaches surrealism. His paintings reflect experience in the absence of reality but still use ordinary objects and scenes filtered through the memory and emotions; resulting in images that evoke metaphysics and the surreal, generating in the viewer feelings and sensations that end up complementing the work.Mejia represents individual experiences and dreams making them appear in a chromatic atmosphere. The magnificent display of colors and shadows makes a cold scene look bright, and each shadow is an element of the entire composition. The result: a scene in a motion picture distant in time that not longer corresponds to the present.Nector Mejia has exhibited in Colombia, Bolivia, Costa Rica, Mexico, USA, Spain and France. He has represented Colombia at SIART the Biennal in Bolivia in 2009. His works are part of important collections.
