Hello, my name is Icaro Lopez de mesa Moyano. I am a Colombian digital media artist, Interactive designer, and musician, passionate about sound. Currently interested in performance and in the materiality of electronics. My work has been developed in both artistic and commercial fields and it is the outcome of explorations that combine art, sound, new media, electronics, music, and education.
Throughout my career, I have found the importance to promote an awareness of the sound we create which surrounds us. And I believe that the integration of the aural, the spatial, and the sonic since childhood is indispensable. So my work has been related to these intentions through the use of new technologies in poetic expressions.
I have a master's degree in digital media from the University of the Arts in Bremen, Germany. I was awarded a Scholarship by the Deutscher Akademischer Austauschdienst (DAAD) to study my M.A. I did my bachelor's as an industrial designer at the National University of Colombia. Additionally, I have 8 years of music studies in the New Culture music training school (Escuela Nueva Cultura) and a Diploma in Independent Band Management, awarded by the Bogota Philharmonic Orchestra. Also, I have experience on stage as a singer and musician for over 20 years.
Currently, I am the coordinator of the Binational Artistic PhD program at HfK Bremen. For more than a year, I was the creative director at Critertec Experience, a company that carries out art, technology, and education projects. In 2014, I worked at PANORAMIKA SAS, one of Colombia's most well-known multimedia laboratories, where I held the positions of programing-developer, designer, and finally director of projects in the interactive design team.
I have also been the creator of three musical projects: LA PULPA, RESINA LALA and SHI$HA, with whom I have been invited to international festivals and events such as SXSW (USA), Lollapalooza (CHI), Fimu Fest (France), Day day up (China), Stereo Picnic, Rock Al Parque, Festival Hermoso Ruido, and Circulart in Colombia. My work as an artist has been exhibited at festivals such as Art Vision Contest Moscow, Design and emotion, Bogotá Book Fair, Arttec, and Plataforma Bogotá. My most recent musical Project Is called NENE DEL SOLAR. and I work also together with Victor Artiga Rodriguez on the performance collective Tremendo Parche Latino.
On this website, you can find the outstanding projects that I have made with friends, companies, and institutions throughout my career as an artist, interactive designer, and musician.
