Enrique Collar is a visual artist and film director from Paraguay, who is currently living and working in Rotterdam in the Netherlands. Collar’s figurative paintings explore representations of reality in a 2D context and spherical 360-degrees for Virtual Reality.
Cultural Exploration of Latin America
Collar has had an interest in painting ever since he poured over the brightly coloured comic book pages as a young child. He rediscovered his love of art whilst working in various printing companies during his teenage years. Born in the Paraguayan countryside, his Latin American heritage greatly influences his earlier work, focusing on cultural questions of myth and reality. On moving to Holland in 2003, Collar decided to close this chapter of his life and explore a new direction of figurative painting.
