WHAT WE REPRESENT
Casa Jaguar is a contemporary multidisciplinary arts studio based in Barcelona. The aim of our artworks is to reflect on the history of the peoples, landscapes and cultural heritage of Latin America.
These projects are based on the plastic works of Ivonne Portillo Sierra. Her pieces honor indigenous people’s historical memory using an original technique that combines oil, acrylic, engraving and collage. We have created a collection of multidisciplinary works that encompass plastic art, photography, poetry, animations, music and film.
