MATÍAS HERRERO
   
  THE MORAL FOUNDATIONS ARE DRAWN...
BUT THERE ARE THOSE WHO LOOK...
 
 

Portraying the country that hurts amounts to more than audacity. Because there is emptiness and rupture, deceit and helplessness, broken illusions and betrayals. How do you paint so much pain without falling into drama? It is difficult to portray the country that hurts. Matías Herrero draws the thing from the inside and appeals humor: a noble tool. With it and some extra perception that builds the environment, he develops his critical proposal.

And it really does it with
impact. With impact and justice. Because without naming anyone, he names them all of our contemporary reality. And without shackles, he chains them with the image. He puts all the politicians in the blender and imprisons the arterous meat salesman in the bones. He rejoices in the face of disoriented fans and asks for daily salvation for travelers piled up in transport. And the trade unionists who devour themselves? The repertoire is vast, and Matías Herrero knows it and assumes with his agile, sharp, penetrating line. A challenge, he assumes.

Curriculum


TRAJECTORY
:

I work 20 years in foreign trade.

“In 2013 I decided to step aside to fully devote myself to developing as an artist. I set up a personal exploration workshop on the ground floor of San Isidro, I offered drawing classes and some experimental live music dance and drawing shows. I participated in the open-door events of the San Isidro bass with a series of works that combined photography and digital painting. I was invited to show these works again the following year at a similar event.
