Artist and educator
1991. Born in Colombia and based in the United Kingdom.
Snyder understands art as a tool for personal and collective healing and spiritual transformation. Art is an essential mechanism for facing and transmuting challenging experiences; therefore, it assists in learning from them. This process of learning and constant falling and rising is what he calls a spiritual path.
His projects have a strong experiential and contextual component; these emerge from personal encounters that allow him to reflect on existence and deep into environmental, political, affective, and material aspects. His practice takes an ethical perspective, being aware of its ecological and emotional impacts.
He is interested in learning about ancestral ways of knowing, other epistemologies, spirituality, decolonial theory, and gardening. Most recently, he is interested in how humans relate to other living beings and Planet Earth.
