Ever since he was a child, Carlos Giraldo has been feverishly recording his syncretic visions in drawings that combine Egyptian antiquity with anatomical treatises, the prophecies of Nostradamus with pre-Columbian civilisations, or World War II and the Simpsons. That’s when he’s not busy listing precise and detailed data about the Titanic. In Bogota, where he lives in an apartment with his parents, this Asperger’s sufferer is busy with his encyclopaedic task. Setting down his treatises on sheets of tracing paper or fine paper which he sometimes assembles into codexes, Giraldo is giving form not to one, but to myriad individual mythologies, each more fascinating than the next.
