Villamizar draws inspiration from organic shapes, intimacy, and the human body in general. his work is full of color and elusive framing. Spontaneous impulses endow his works with an almost comforting nostalgia. in his paintings, there is a constant mixture of street and intimacy that, together, form an interesting diary of life.
