Gaston Ugalde

"I'm a very obsessed photographer; trying to communicate, and integrate our country with art."

One of the vanguards of Bolivian art in the international sphere - Gaston Ugalde has been a leader in visual arts throughout his long-spanning and impressive career.  His work is deeply influenced by Bolivian culture, tradition, and politics, often engaging with these influences in a dialogue of mutual influence. Ugalde's work is highly mutable, serving both as a documentation and conversation with countless social movements.  His installation works are complex mergers of form and environment. Their ecosystem being both a core facet of their existence and critical to what one takes from them. The heat of a desert, working hand in hand with the heat of a bright red, pulling those who see them into a unified experience.
