At the moment, Germán has a studio dedicated to sculptures made of wood and stone, as well as his artistic paintings. He also produces and sells handicrafts such as lamps made of wood, parchment, and leather. For this reason, he is requesting a loan worth 1,500,000 COP to buy materials such as wooden blocks of different sizes, containers of oil-based paint, and chisels in different sizes. The works he will create will allow him to continue expressing his own style.
Germán dreams of consolidating his work and positioning himself for other opportunities, such as opening markets in Latin America and achieving recognition at a few galleries on a national level. His greatest challenge is getting access to professional education. He says the application and testing processes are difficult and do not correlate to his knowledge of the visual arts. German lives in an attractive neighborhood with a nice location that contains a view of the hills to inspire his imagination and develop his creative potential.
En la actualidad, Germán Garzón tiene un taller donde se dedica a la escultura en madera, piedra, pintura artística y además elabora y vende productos artesanales como lámparas en madera, pergamino, y cuero, para lo cual necesita comprar materiales, como bloques para tallaje en madera, unidades de oleos y gubias por tallaje; este es precisamente el propósito del financiamiento al que aplica por valor de $ 1.500.000 para seguir expresando su estilo.
Sueña con consolidar y posicionar su trabajo, abrir mercados a nivel latinoamericano y ganar reconocimiento en algunas galerías a nivel nacional. Su mayor desafío es poder acceder a la educación profesional, pues dice que es difícil la tramitologia y la aplicación de pruebas que no son acordes a las artes plásticas. Vive en un barrio atractivo, con entorno geográfico y visión al lado de cerros que inspiran su imaginación y desarrollan todos los dias su potencial creativo.
