LIVES AND WORKS
DATE OF BIRTH
Costa Rican artist dedicated to the creation of three-dimensional works of art made of paper.
As of 2021 I have developed a career as a visual artist, presenting my art pieces is spaces of high prestige, including local and international museums.
I my art pieces to talk about issues of tolerance for the environment in which we live, for the people who live in it and for our representations of love. It is an artistic exploration in favor of equality, love, respect and sexual diversity, expressed in works of art that seek to open spaces for conversation. In every one of my exhibitions I seek to connect with communities to raise awareness to these topics and to hopefully change lives.
For me, the function of art is to change society and to bring attention to problems that are part of our daily lives. In my case, I use my art to open conversations about the experiences of all kinds of people in regards to their sexual identity, or the discrimination they have felt due to it. This is something that I really consider necessary for our society to advance together.
This had led me to present in spaces as the National Art Museum of China, the National Gallery of Costa Rica, the Museum of Cartago and several international biennials, representing both my country and the sexually diverse community.
