After holding successful positions as a top executive in important companies, Cristián, motivated by his perpetual artistic call, decided to change his path and dedicate his life to painting. He left the city, and found a magical space by the shores of Lago Rapel in the central part of Chile. He paints while in close contact with nature as well as spending long hours sailing and enjoying long conversations around a good glass of wine.
His ancestors lived in Northern France until a sailor decided to venture toward the southern oceans. It is said that this ancestor arrived to Chile through Patagonia. Fascinated by the beauty of the landscape and the warmth of the people, he settled in Chile and started a new life.Download brochure

A dialogue between expression and intuition
The themes in Cristián’s work encompass realities and fictions, characters, places, feelings and dreams, all illuminating how he sees the world.
His creative process flows from a dialogue between expression and intuition in which his ideas and experiences intertwine with what his work needs to express. A bit of magical realism can be recognized in his style.
Cristián’s art is not explicit, but more suggestive; color plays an important role as the main character.
