Andrés Marti studied fine arts and design at the Pontificia Universidad Javeriana in Bogotá, Colombia. Six years ago he co-created with two partners the Colombian artbrand "Comes Cake" and the design studio "Whatever Works", having the opportunity to work with different national and international clients in advertising, design and experiences.
Otherness is his personal photography project in which he expresses himself as a human through others. It is a series of portraits taken throughout the last four years. His camera has framed self-portraits, but most of these images are of his friends and acquaintances, colouring their noses and eyelids in ruby red like Rembrandt paintings—physically expressing vulnerability of these beings. Marti photographs these models, but as he says, “its essence is collage. I mix makeup with post-production, natural and artificial light, real elements with digital. I seek to immerse the character in a timeless universe that plays between reality and fiction”.
