Freddy Mamani transforms El Alto with vibrant colours

Feb 11, 2019

Freddy Mamani has been reportedly transforming El Alto with his colourful architecture. Located nearly 13,000 ft above sea level, Mamani architecture incorporates lines and motifs from a very ancient architecture, from the imperial capital of Tiwanaku. From the ruins, he takes the geometric shapes, which include depictions of condors, pumas and other natural forms, and blends them into more figural organic designs that also reference elements like mountains, lightning, animals and flowers. He has taken the local tradition to another level. The bright blues, greens, reds and pinks of these fabrics are splashed liberally across the facades of Mamani's buildings.The finished structures serve multiple purposes. Mamani has reportedly completed around 70 buildings in El Alto.
