Daniela Galan

Artist and art historian

Daniela Galan is a Colombian artist and art historian from Goldsmiths University. She is also a former lawyer and philosopher of Los Andes University, with a five-year background in education and corporate training. 

Since she started her career as an artist she has been working at the intersection of contemporary art practice, sculpture, and philosophy. Mastering how to print images into objects with liquid light (silver gelatine) and exploring industrial materials such as concrete, metal, mercury to challenge our understanding of natural landscape. 
 
Her research as a philosopher and art historian has concentrated on exploring the concept of nature and understanding how this concept has been constructed through historical and political influences. She has concentrated her art history research in Latin American art history with an emphasis on female artists.
