Vane MG [Vanessa Moncayo González]
Vane MG is a multidisciplinary artist & Designer from Colombia who is now established in London. She worked in the Design world from 2009 & in 2015 she started working on projects which focussed on highlighting the importance of Latin American women.
Some of her most important artworks are at the world renowned Kew Gardens in London., painting colourful Colombian nature in murals at the Princess of Wales Conservatory for the famous Orchid Festival. Participating in this huge event positioned her as a Colombian artist representing her country whilst being the first artist in the world to paint inside the Kew Gardens walls. She also participated in an art and dance performance at Tate Modern in London, painting a special piece representing Afro Colombian roots which have shaped the culture of the Pacific region and recently she worked for the world renowned Wellcome Collection Museum in London illustrating one of the articles on their website.

Also, she is working as a Street Artist in London, adding a lot of colour in different parts of the city and participating in art collectives such as WOM collective and Art House Project London.
Painting, street art, digital illustration and Art Videomapping are some mediums she uses.
Now as a female artist, although far from her land of origin, she feels the call of her roots which she wants to share with the rest of the world expressed with a lot of colourful wind vanes, plants and her characteristic realistic female portraits full of hearts and London vibrations.
Her objective is to attempt to reclaim elements of the cultural past, integrating it with the present and creating new colourful images looking for her own identity.
Dedicating this artistic project to all the women who want to feel a little of the only freedom that could never be stolen, 'the freedom of our spirit'
This is how Vane MG was born.
