Bio

A visual artist and architect by profession, born in Santiago de Chile. His interest in street art began during his college years, especially inspired by the works of the artist Jean Michel Basquiat. After seeing a movie about the artist, the need to express oneself through art and writing began to flourish. Since 2009 been experimenting with a mix of techniques and on differ-ent canvases. He has had exhibits in Corportation of Reñaca, restaurant Verde Sazon and Cafetin. He has also participated in collective exhibits at a 30 x 30 gallery. Art collectors from USA, Mexico and England have acquired works from the artist.

STATEMENT: It all started with a sketchbook that I would use daily and add elements, writings, thoughts and images that I would encounter, creating a scene that would have different texts, lines, papers and stains that would then contribute to the creative process of portraying these realities in different canvases, objects and on different scales.
