About Aldo Chaparro

Aldo Chaparro is known for expanding the boundaries that separate art from other disciplines, making of this frontier his central theme. Through different media, Chaparro remixes and edits references from the media world pushing aside the notions of past and future to offer a present where simultaneity co-exists. He is the editorial director of Celeste Editorial Group, and as an editor he is able to take phrases and images referent to art an art history and decontextualize them giving them a new meaning. He plays with the notion of the two and three-dimensional as his steel sculptures stand as a record of the performative action that gave them form.

b. 1965, based in Lima, Peru
