About

The literal lines and meticulous technique of Sebastian Riffo Montenegro's original figurative artworks seem to offer an unquestionable realism where the images, textures, and palette are clear, frontal and concrete. However, the surrealist work of Riffo-Montenegro inevitably urges the viewer to delve into the underlying mysteries of the series; reconsidering what is initially offered as mere imagery.

This vibrant 39 inch tall by 63 inch wide artwork is painted with acrylic on canvas.Working with a selective palette and controlled lighting, Montenegro-Riffo reveals the intent of his work through veils of lucid colors and mysterious forms. The ensuing works refer frankly to socio-cultural icons that shape a subconscious discourse. Absence paradoxically presents clear criticism of current social mores. Through pictorial allegories, the paintings provoke the need to discern new meaning and awaken the tacit human condition of free will. The artwork is signed by the artist on the front lower right corner in red. This artwork is wired and ready to hang.

Sebastian Riffo Montenegro

Born in Chile in 1980, Sebastian Riffo Montenegro is a visual artist that also currently works as an Art Director in Marketing and Advertising. Maintaining a lucrative career with each trajectory he takes, Montenegro maintains a solid production of artworks that criticize consumer society and socially constructed beliefs. Disposable artificial products that envelop and define the behavior of humans are the subject of criticism; products with no inherent value that have an expiration date. By passing these images through acrylic paint to create a representation of an object, they lose their programmed expiration and become timeless reflections of consumption.

Faceless figures in raincoats maneuver through deconstructed color-field backgrounds. Absent in limbs or pulling at what only the cloth of a neon jacket holds together, Riffo-Montenegro exposes the effect of consumerism on individual identity. Working with a selective palette and controlled lighting, Montenegro-Riffo reveals the intent of his work through veils of lucid colors and mysterious forms. The ensuing works refer frankly to socio-cultural icons that shape a subconscious discourse. Absence paradoxically presents clear criticism of current social mores. Through pictorial allegories, the paintings provoke the need to discern new meaning and awaken the tacit human condition of free will.
