TRIBUTE TO LATIN AMERICA

From its beginnings in the 1960s, Latin American contemporary art has not ceased evolving. Artists have been influenced by minimalism, conceptual art and many other international movements but have always developed their own original style, influenced by the history of their countries and contemporary culture. The long years of dictatorship and political turmoil has been the subject of many artists’ work, but they also draw inspiration from the cities, the landscapes and the people themselves.

From Brazil to Argentina via Peru, there are plenty of South American artists to be found on Artsper! Selected by our partner galleries for their quality work, these artists open the doors of Latin American art to a larger public through paintings, photographs or sculptures.
