Visual artist Born in Lima, raised in cadaqués, residing and working in Brussels.
Born during times of terrorism in a country of munificent tradition, coloured with vibrant flavours and a religious collectivity, called Perú. At the age of five I was forced to leave to Europe, losing my home but realizing a dream. This brutal relationship between Eu- rope and Perú, two contrasting cultures, forced me to find my place as an artist in my current socio-political context.
My artistic journey has been marked by the exploration of various mediums, including painting, sculpture, and installation art. Beyond my artistic practice, I have the com- mitment to use organic materials and art as my communication tool and as a means for social change. I has actively participated in social practices based around the familly pot, projects and initiatives that aim to promote cultural diversity, inclusivity, and social empowerment.
Much of my work to date has explored our relationship to acts of bringing food to the table, into our surrounding neighbourhoods in order to gather around the comforting rituals of food, which define our social ecology and our identity.
Recently, in both Appropriation & Reappropriation and the Recapitulation Edible Library, I ́ve been working with organic materials in tandem with sculptures and tech- nology.
