The series tells the adventures of a Dapinty, a curious painter, musician, and explorer who travels with Miguel, the Paintbrush (his magical friend), through the regions of Colombia in search of fascinating animals they want to paint. On their journeys, they learn about the animals' habitats and discover the regions' natural, cultural, and food riches. Their adventures always leave them in awe and give them all the knowledge to finish their paintings. Each episode takes place in real locations in one of the Colombian regions, such as Mompox (Caribbean), El Tuparro National Natural Park (Orinoco), Santurbán Paramo (Andean), Providencia Island (Insular), Chiribiquete (Amazon), Nuquí and Solano Bay (Pacific).
"Our responsibility is to help position the Colombian film industry in the world and, with our series, lead a large group of Colombian creatives and companies. We also want to acknowledge the institutional efforts of Colombia's ministries to increase the production and quality of audiovisual and cultural content," says Iván D. Vanegas, executive producer and representative of the project.
