Artist Name

Cristian Cuevas Pardo

Born: 1981

Hometown: Concepción

Based in: SANTIAGO DE CHILE

I am an artist from the south of Chile, from the beginning of my artistic career I was addressing the most academic problems of art, and that has helped me to approach abstraction from a more deconstructive angle as well as from the logic of discourse.​

I currently live and work in Santiago, I dedicate myself 100% to developing my works, I continue to address issues such as landscape, what interests me today is to talk about "man as a changing entity of that so-called landscape", as much as it is deconstructs and builds into something else, as well as in the different angles that this allows us to appreciate and how it changes, when you change as an observer, I approach my plastic work​

from different angles and techniques, such as painting, sculpture, photography, video art, etc.​

Today I am completely devoted to continue developing my work from different areas, both in the plastic search (sculpture, materials, equipment, techniques, etc.), and in the development of my work towards new digital media,​

(metaverse, NFT, video art, etc.).
