Did I mention that Colombians are wildly welcoming people? Well next thing I know we are sipping Tempranillo in the uber-romantic studio + apartment of one of Columbia’s most celebrated artists. Colorful, passionate, and easy-going…a description that applies to the place, artwork and l’artiste.

Guillermo the boxer
Just down the street from Hotel Tcherassi, behind a decrepid doorway, lives a kookey little man named Guillermo. In his youth Guillermo was a notable boxer. Now he spends his days painting unruly figures like the cat dressed as a Torreador, who now also resides in our home. On some days, you might even find Guillermo wandering around his bedroom in an old helmet. A sight to behold!
