About The Artist
A Colombian artist renowned for his unique, highly symbolic depictions of landscapes and portraits. His distinctive style of Psychedelic Magic Realism was created out of his desire to develop an original technique through the adaptation of the classic school with innovative tools and materials.
With Monet, Van Gogh, and Dali amongst his inspirations, Arias expresses his underlying message by evoking automatism through vigorous brushstrokes that incorporate techniques from impressionism, postimpressionism, and surrealism.
Having grown in the mountains of Colombia surrounded not only by the serenity of nature, but the reality of civil war, Arias is passionate about supporting wildlife causes and is involved in local community work with underprivileged children that focuses on self-development with the aim of improving mental wellbeing.
Each design on this website has been meticulously created to provide unique and affordable items that embody the essence of his artistic philosophy.
- "I have been looking at this painting for a while and my wife gave it to me for my birthday. I love it! And I love Camilo’s art, specially the Astronomad series. While it could at first sight look a bit messy and disorganized, every brushstroke has been though through. It comes from a deep analysis and each single color, line or spot comes with a specific emotion that the artist has put in it and that he transfers to the public when staring at this outstanding piece of art. On top of being a great addition to our small wall collection of paintings and arts, I see camilo’s art also as an investment as I truly believe and hope that it will gain value in time. Thank you." – Filippo, Italy, 2018.

" The psychedelic scenes of my paintings, where human being and nature coexist and interact around tropical colors, create surreal landscapes and scenarios, always with a message and the intrinsic presence of dualism where art, as a language form, must convey a message.
In my paintings, I denounce society issues aiming to create cognitive change in humanity. "
Art came to me when I was surrounded by violence and suspicion, fear and death, and helped me overcome it and use it as a way of relieve. For this reason, I get involved in projects that allow children with limited resources, from violent contexts, to have access to Art and cultural activities. Using my work to mentor them aiming their self development and impacting positively their lives, is my best reward.
