About Fernando Gomez Balbontin

Fernando Gómez Balbontín (1981), is a Chilean artist and architect who has been creating and painting as a way of questioning and resisting his environment since childhood. His creative process involves pictorial experimentation, traveling between figurative and abstract art.

His work consists of building a portrait of western consumer society by using recognizable elements such as destroyed technological bulks, phalluses and virgins. These emotionally charged imagery allows him to express a unique perspective on the links between death, consumption and religion.

His paintings have been exhibited internationally and are part of private collections in Chile, China, the United Kingdom and the United States.
