Oscar Muñoz

Oscar Muñoz (b. 1951, Colombia) graduated from Escuela de Bellas Artes in 1971. He became known for using non-conventional photographic and mechanical printing techniques as well as video. He created a singular imagery and historiography by using transient mediums—such as human breath, water, dust and methacrylate—, focusing on the precarious reality of human life.

Muñoz’ works are in important public and private collections including the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, USA; the Museum of Modern Art (MomA), New York, USA; the Daros Collection, Zurich, Switzerland; the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles, USA; the Museo del Barrio, New York, USA; The Hirshorm Museum, Washington D.C, USA; the Museum of the Americas, New York, USA; the Fundación la Caixa, Barcelona, Spain; the Tate Modern, London, UK; MAMBO, Bogotá; Daros Collection, Rio de Janeiro; UBS Collection; Colección Banco de la República de Colombia; FRAC Picardie; Colorado Art Museum; MEIAC, Badajoz, Spain; LACMA, los Angeles, USA; Colección Jumex, Mexico City, Mexico; JP Morgan Collection; MALBA, Buenos Aires, Argentina; MOMA San Francisco, USA; and Kadist Foundation, France.
