Santiago, 1982

  • CV

Federico Infante is born in 1982 in Santiago (Chile). Each of his artworks goes through an intuitive painting process. He starts with the methodical, expressive act of covering the canvas with several layers of painting, scratching it and repeating this process many times, trying to express his unconscious mind, the part of him that has not been processed by logic. Then, Federico starts visualizing situations, landscapes or spots of light into the canvas, looking for a suggestive and fertile atmosphere that gives life to what he believes to be the figurative element of the painting: a person standing alone, a piece of architecture coming out of the dark, an open sky.

Federico Infante received his BFA from Finis Terrae University in Santiago (Chile) and graduated with his MFA in Illustration from the School of Visual Arts in New York. He has had several successful solo and group exhibitions in the US, in Chile and Italy. His work has been adopted into private collections across the US, Europe (France, Belgium, Germany and Italy), Saudi Arabia and Singapore. He lives and works in Richmond (Virginia - USA).
