Apitatán

(Ecuador, 1987)

Apitatán is known for incorporating indigenous motifs and popular traditions of Ecuador in his art. In Ayahuasca, the shaman drinking the spiritual beverage with the same name, describes a personal experience of the artist. When he first tried ayahuasca, Apitatán visualized his essence as a cat with huge teeth. Simultaneously, he felt connected with spirits from the jungle and wondered what our world was like before there were borders separating us.
