I've studied International Relations and Diplomacy, but i'm actually interested in economy and social studies. There is something in art that somehow explains a lot that's happening in the world right now, and i seek to uncover it. Feel free to contact me at

Álvaro Barrios is a Colombian artist, whose iconic comic book style burgeoned from an early passion for drawing, inspired by the comics he read as a child.
