Location: Chile

Throughout the past thirty years, I have participated in collective and individual shows in both Chile and abroad. An especially meaningful one was "El Porqué de Valparaíso" held at UNESCO in Paris, France. My work is included in prestigious art books that are internationally distributed in museums and galleries and sold online.

Experiencing in situ the geographical and ethnographic spaces is vital to connect emotionally and intellectually with the painting. I have traversed the Atacama Desert, the saltpeter towns, Valparaíso and the southernmost regions of Chile to later recreate and interpret them in the solitude of my studio.

My work consists of three major projects developed throughout my career: “El Porqué de Valparaíso,” “La Huella del Tiempo,” and “Del Salitre a Iquique.” "Entre Marruecos y la India," the project I am currently working on, aims to explore opposite cultures that join together for a common purpose.
