    About the artist

    He lives and works in Berlin
    1967: Born in Chile

    She started her carrier in the art sector in Viña del Mar studying Visual Communication at the University of Design. Thereafter she moved to Germany where she studied at the Kunstakademie in Düsseldorf with professor Jannis Kounellis and Rosemarie Trocke, further she studied for her Post-graduate diploma at the Kunsthochschule für Medien, Cologne, Germany.

    Sandra creates art with the technique of drawing and watercolor on dipped wax paper. The melancholic dreams and phantoms, which constantly appear in her oeuvre, recall to the political past experienced during her adolescence.

    In 2009 she won the Prize for Contemporary Drawing, awarded by the Daniel and Florence Guerlain Foundation in Paris, and later that year her work was exhibited in the Bonnefantenmuseum Maastricht, The Netherlands.

    Sandra Vásquez de la Horra’s art has been exhibited in several institutions in Europe, USA, South America and Asia, and she recently participated in the Sao Paulo Biennale 2012 with great success.
