Art Reviews

Duván's work is not a work made from ingenuity, but from the touch of genius that very few artists are granted. Jaume Fábrega, art critic. Girona.

Duván is one of the few Colombian artists who will go down not only in the history of painting but also in painting itself, with Eduardo Ramírez Villamizar and Luis Caballero. Harold Alvarado Tenorio, Colombian poet.

I haven't seen a painting like Duván's since Picasso. Marlenne Hoffman, Colombian artist and gallerist.

Duván is an artist with science and conscience. Master Gil Tovar. Colombian art critic.

Duván is to Colombia what Tamayo is to Mexico. Pepa Pombo, Colombian designer.

The communication of the artist's soul must transcend the soul of a country, and that is where the creative potential lies in Duván's work.
