Born and raised in Bogotá - Colombia (1989), Gabriel divides his practice between leather goods manufacturing, his family's traditional craft, and his work as an artist. He is graduated from London College of Fashion, MA Fashion Artefact, and previous BA Art and BA Design from Universidad de Los Andes. He is deeply interested in traditional crafts, materiality and sculpture, getting particular attention for the human and organic morphologies.
His process can be divided into two main sections: first, an exploration and search around the concept of self-identity and the creation of a self-image. Second, a comprehension of the human body based on the relation between its internal and external structures and forms as a medium to question the traditional notion of body and its limits. These sections respond to a constant dialogue into his work about construction and deconstruction of the self, and its conception as a matter of constant change.
