About Me

 



Carlos Lersundy is recognized in Colombia and Latin America as one of the relevant figures in art and advertising.


He has worked as a Creative Director in prestigious advertising agencies like Young & Rubicam, (New York and Amsterdam) and Leo Burnett (Bogotá). 
He has also been an independent documentary filmmaker. Founder, owner and Creative Director of the Vi-Viendo creative group. A company dedicated to the design of corporate and political advertising campaigns.

As a political advisor in advertising and Creative Direction, he designed and produced the 
campaign / César Gaviria President / the advertising campaign for the National Constituent Assembly of 1991 in Colombia and campaigns for the candidates to the Colombian Senate: Fuad Char, Juan Diego Jaramillo and Juan Martin Caicedo among others.

In relation to his advertising work he was awarded two "Indias Catalina" for best commercial in the Film Festival of Cartagena and a "Condor de Oro" for the design of Cesar Gaviria / Presidential image.

During his professional life he has shown special interest in cultural manifestations that identify the Colombians, being worthy of a scholarship from the Peggy Guggenheim Foundation to make a short film about the visualization practices of the Tucano Indians in the Amazon jungle.

Lersundy has done individual and group exhibitions internationally since 1967
For the last four years he has taught people to see anew using drawing and painting techniques.
