About

Guillermo Muñoz Vera is an internationally acclaimed artist whose work has been the subject of many one-person exhibitions throughout Europe and, more recently, in the United States. Born in 1956 in Concepción, Chile, Muñoz Vera studied at the Universidad de Chile in Santiago, at which he also taught in the Facultad de Bellas Artes. In 1979 the artist moved to Madrid where he continues to work and live today. There, in 1994, along with Spanish artist Carmen Spínola, Muñoz Vera founded the important foundation, ARAUCO, la Fundación Arte y Autores Contemporáneos, which actively promotes multidisciplinary artistic ventures and offers cross-cultural programs to students from around the world. The work of Guillermo Muñoz Vera is as consistent in its representational excellence as it is protean in the experiences reflected. Ultimately his is a personal interpretation of the human condition, confronted with conviction and subtlety, in which the artist’s technical prowess and precision never detract from the conceptual outline of his subjects. Inspired by the large-scale paintings he created for his 2002 commission for Santiago del Chile’s La Moneda metro station, from 2003 to 2007, Muñoz Vera executed a series of oils focusing on the natural wonders of his native Chile. A long tradition of Spanish realist painting, dating back to Diego Velázquez in the 17th century, has guided Muñoz Vera in his delicate use of light and shadows, as both his portraits and still-lifes are imbued with dexterous and subtle shading. Over twenty publications have been printed on the work of Guillermo Muñoz Vera, including a 442 page catalogue with 350 illustrations for his one-person retrospective
