About this item

"Powerpaola has a gift for expressing an entire world with a thin black line, building up textures and details that are a joy to get lost in. InVirus Tropical, her memories of a unique family life are so vividly portrayed that you feel like you are living through all the laughter, joy, tears and door-slamming right along with her. It's a treat of a book."Sarah Glidden, author ofHow to Understand Israel in 60 Days or Less.

In Virus Tropical, Powerpaola uses a series of vignettes to transform the simplicity of middle-class family life into a thought-provoking narrative that would have been inconceivable prior to Columbia's sexual revolution. Focusing on the lives of a family of women in the eighties through the nineties, Powerpaola's tale highlights the excitement, danger, and struggles of a country in the midst of radical change.

Powerpaola was born in 1977 in Quito, Ecuador, and, at a young age, she moved to Medellín, Colombia, where she adopted the name Powerpaola. She founded a collective space of expression, Taller 7, and was granted a scholarship to develop her art in La Cité Internationale des Arts in Paris, where she lived for two years. She is currently writing a sequel toVirus Tropical and lives in Buenos Aires with her husband.
