About Neco Beth
I was born in Chile 1951, as the third of five brothers. My family has always had a close relation to the sea. From very young I knew my life would be dedicated to art. I like to multiply formats and to use different techniques to rediscover - in my personal visual library - images of different expressions in the pre-history of men, mixing or superimposing them in different styles.
My investigation in creation is centred in the supporting materials and the colours that call my attention: ochres and oxide reds and also the different movements in modern art. My painting is ethnical and I am an artist to materialise my instincts.
After finishing school in Chile, I moved to Paris where I studied Social Sciences and Etnology at the Ecole des Hautes Etudes.
Afterwards I travelled extensively and lived in different cities, showing my work in exhibitions as I moved along.
