School of Visual Arts, 2013, MFA Fine Arts

graffiti/street-art, photography, conceptual, video-art, installation, mixed-media, sculpture, abstract


Born and raised in Chile, I have been living and working in NYC for over three years now. I make interdisciplinary work that re-purposes found and ready-made objects; materials I find on my surroundings initiate work that is in constant flux. Objects are playfully transformed and combined resisting conversion into a specific medium or finalization. This potentially endless process investigates informality, improvisation and new forms of abstract assemblage. Using society’s excess I emphasize an overly consumerist culture where the disposable condition of things is given. Working on the street and the studio the difference between art and life becomes slight.
