Greetings from Nowhere.

Javier Robelo is a multidisciplinary visual artist  from Managua, Nicaragua. He holds a BA with Honors in Art History and Studio Art from Williams College. Javier's art practice provides a space for his imagination and lived experiences to intertwine. He creates an expansive visual world that transforms everyday happenings and autobiographical material into folklore. His work is inhabited by fantastical characters and strange monsters that serve as a tool to record that which otherwise goes unrecorded: affects, memories, and personal mythologies. Through this imaginative practice, he documents the deeply personal nature of memory and all of its earnest inaccuracies.
