Nicolas Sanchez

Born in 1981 - Chile


NIcolas Sanchez was born in Santiago, Chile in 1981.

He depicts the world that surrounds him in his work, ranging from the representation of domestic animals to that of human personages. The colors are clear, pastel, mostly joyful, they contrast with the gravity of the faces and the empty looks of his portraits.
The landscapes allow him to create a vanishing point in a world that is in continuous movement, his images just like the images of romantics of the eigteenth century, denounced the nonsense and the exuberances of their society, Nicolas Sanchez tries to scape the present moment through his paintings.
Melancholy, nostalgy, anger and hope are some of the feelings the viewer experiences when looking at the work of this artist.
