PLASTIC ARTISTAlejandro Arrepol

Education:

DEGREE IN ART MENTION RECORDED, UNIVERSITY OF CONCEPTION, CHILE.

The theme that I explore in my work transits through the in finite relationship between man and his environment; encounter of the real with the imaginary. The human figure becomes, in these figurative spaces, protagonist sharing the scene with elements that could be typical of the daily home or fantastic scenarios. My characters are dressed or disguised with a temporary, colorful and playful clothes that help them in some way not to reveal their true personality. They are like actors representing a certain role in the work and can not express their own emotions: Trapeze artists and harlequins looking for balance mounted on balls, ropes or bicycles. Static and dynamic elements articulated in evocatively unreal spaces.
