Sebastián Vargas -“Tan Vargas”- (Chile, 1980) studied Fine Arts at Finis Terrae University of Chile, with a Sculpture Major Degree. He participated in several exhibitions in different galleries and public spaces, in Chile and abroad, receiving awards and recognitions. In parallel, he has been joined art residences and workshops through different art institutions in Chile, New Zealand, Thailand and New York, teaching his work system to students of different universities like Otago Polytechnic School of Visual Arts in New Zealand, Chiang Mai University in Thailand, Universidad Finis Terrae and Universidad Mayor in Chile. Currently, he lives and works in Copenhagen, Denmark.
Tan Vargas uses diverse media, techniques and materials in the creation of his paintings. Amongst his works, the use of silk-screen printing is identified as his prime method, for graphic treatment later on. Drawing and vector images play a main role within his pieces, in which he combines diverse elements of illustration, photography and advertising images, combined in a purely pictorial field firmly rooted in Street Art.
His work has been related on innumerable occasions to some of the referents of Pop Art; likewise, his neo-figurative compositions linked to the world of advertising give life to a work that is elaborated under conditions of automatism, that is, giving wide space for gestural freedom over intellectual control in the production and conception of each piece.
