Born in October 1984 in Guatemala, Aleksandr Zuleta is a versatile visual artist currently residing in Mexico. With a background in Graphic Design in Communication and Advertising from Guatemala's Universidad del Istmo, Zuleta furthered his education with a degree in Philosophy and Art at CODARTS, Hogeschool Voor de Kunsten in the Netherlands.

Zuleta's artistic practice defies contemporary classifications, encompassing formal painting, experimental painting trends, sculpture, drawing, photography, installation, and collage. His work explores diverse themes, including the lyrical, the mundane, and the poetic, often delving into the fragility of everyday objects and cultures in Latin America and beyond, incorporating elements of Readymade art.

A recurring theme in Zuleta's work is a deep exploration of childhood issues, leading him to investigate the existence of forms, objects, and humanity. His artistic inquiry questions the reasons behind these elements within the dimensions of space and time, challenging conventional notions of reality in art. Time and space become constant searches for Zuleta, shaping his works as a response to personal concerns derived from conceptual reflections and emotional experiences related to his home country and the evolving globalized world. His creative journey involves a daily reunion with objects driven by a sense of aesthetic beauty, transitioning between geometric abstraction, objectual concretion, and ephemeral interventions in specific sites. Zuleta's artistic impact extends globally, with his works becoming part of private collections around the world. Notable solo shows include "A billion sperm and you were the first one" at Sholeh Abghari Art Gallery in Marbella, Spain, and "Changing Nature" at Fundacion Pons in Madrid, Spain. His participation in events like the Mercedes Benz Fashion Week in Madrid and sustainability-focused exhibitions underscores Zuleta's commitment to engaging with contemporary themes. Recognition includes the Golden Prize and Merit award at the Venice Biennale, as well as participation in auctions and exhibitions in various prestigious venues worldwide. Zuleta's work is now featured in private collections in different parts of the world, including Nicaragua, Colombia, Spain, the USA, and Australia. He lives and works in Guatemala, Mexico City, and Madrid, Spain, reflecting a dynamic and truly international artistic presence.
