Carlos Altamirano

1954 - 

Chilean artist. He began studies at the school of architecture at the University of Chile based in Valparaíso but abandoned after two years to move to Santiago to study for a year and a half at the School of Arts of the Pontificia Universidad Católica. There he was a student and assistant to Eduardo Vilches.

Member of the “Escena de Avanzada” until his faith in the arts - a political faith - was "dissolved into a skeptic disinterest", as he himself stated.

In the 90s he returns with new visual languages and to modify the discursive strategies of art in Chile.
