How I Got Here: Daniel Liévano

When not working, or hosting workshops, Liévano finds respite in the parks of Bogotá, finding many of his ideas in silence and solitude, or from people-watching. His advice to the world? “Always take a walk.”

In addition to his editorial illustrations, Liévano has written several books. His first graphic novel, Gravity, featured a set of five short stories, connected to the changing historical perceptions of gravity, while Contagion delved into the origins of Mapalé – a Colombian folkloric dance. A love of philosophy, as well as a personal curiosity around language and semiotics, lies beneath much of Liévano’s work, which often depicts dream-like imagery or encounters.
