Locombia was conceived by Fernando Arias during his yearlong residency at Space Studios in London. Arias invited three Colombian artists to consider cultural and political issues that had an impact on the Colombian community in London. Wilson Diáz and Ana María Millán were invited to a residency at Gasworks and Space Studios respectively. Carolina Caycedo was invited to participate with a public march for the event / exhibition at the Space Gallery.
During Locombia, Diaz collaborated with Millán on a video and also exhibited paintings he made during his time at the Gasworks. The paintings reproduced images of popular 1960s Latin American cartoons, naive images that in spite of their comic appeal also contain sharp messages about the human condition.
