Adriana Ospina's, artwork presents a singular point of view on contemporary art practice, her whole artistic construct includes mediums like photography, video art, installation arts, and sculptural practices.

Her topics are within social manifestations and subjective relationships which unveil different subjects of the quotidian enhanced by her art proposals. She has a fine sense of capturing the poetic nature of things. The sequences she presents have an entangled unique meaning they are an analytical reflection of surrounding states an emotions that define the complexity of the artwork. Not narrowed to cultural apprehensions her works convey into a practice of observation of social means and manifestations of subjective feeling. In her whole artistic construct the themes of identity are always recurrent, as a cultural concept which is enticed by themes that she considers predominant in contemporary culture, some which relate to creative means, technology, globalizing mechanisms and human behaviour.
