Carlos Jimenez, art critic, Cali
I met Jiménez (Charlie, to his friends only) in Cali in 1969, during the glorious days of student life. It was a time full of dreams of a revolution that we thought would arrive any moment after leaving the long lasting drinking parties where we cut our intellectual teeth back then. I met him through my dear Hernán Toro in Cali, Colombia. After many years abroad and countless memories, lost for both of us, we met again in 1995 and we remain friends to this day.
Carlos lives in Madrid from whence he fires his articles which we all read in El País de Cali every Friday.
