Ana María Caballero

Ana María Caballero (b. 1981) is a multidisciplinary, award-winning Colombian-American poet and artist.

Her work explores how biology delimits our societal and cultural rites, ripping the veil off romanticized motherhood and questioning notions that package sacrifice as a virtue. The speakers in her poems find their voice by navigating the intellectual and the everyday, daring to name what’s left unsaid in that all-important space of home.

„We often think of language as precise and of images as open-ended, but there are so many connotations and slippages to words that burst open when we try to fix them, when we try to confine them to a two-dimensional image. “ – Ana Maria Caballero




Ana Maria Caballero is the recipient of the Beverly International Prize, Colombia’s José Manuel Arango National Poetry Prize, the Steel Toe Books Poetry Prize, a Future Art Writers Award and a Sevens Foundation Grant. 

In 2024, she became the first living poet to sell a poem at Sotheby’s. Recognized as a digital poetry pioneer, her work has been nominated for a MAXXI BVLGARI Prize in the Digital Sector, shortlisted for a Lumen Prize, been a finalist for both the Vassar Miller and Academy of American Poetry Prizes
