Jul 24, 2016 Comments Off on Prints, politics and protest in Chile
This week VL English looks at the political art of Pedro Alberto Fuentealba Campos, a visual artist trained at the School of Arts of the University of Concepción, Chile, where he specialized in printmaking. Fuentealba Campos has participated in projects related to the performing arts, film, video, urban intervention, performance, and graphic simulation, and is interested in a wide variety of techniques and media. Drawing inspiration from street posters and collectivist visions of art, Fuentealba Campos’ woodprints consistently take a critical view of his society, addressing aspects of daily life. Whether or not one agrees with the political opinions expressed, the images are worth consideration as an intelligent and creative act of protest.
