“The coffee, I prefer it black”, Isabel Ortiz, 2014


Acrylic on paper and graphite on paper
12 x 36 cm
The paintings are a sort of memory of my passage through the coffee region of Tanzania, between March 2 and July 17, 2012. The pregnancy of my son Jacob, the beauty of the people and Kilimanjaro´s landscapes were my inspiration. Jhon Mejia my husband wrote in Spanish the text about each topic; Lorena Suarez, Cristina Escobar and Laura Riascos translated to English; Cleopatra Mambo to the Swahili; Donald Temba to Chagga. The Colombian company Oro Molido s.a generously financed the book "The coffee, I prefer it black”
