Francisco Cabrera (Chile)
Francisco Cabrera presents a series of engravings, made mostly in metal, showing people central to our societies who are ironically forgotten or undervalued. From day laborers to the peoples of distant native villages, all are represented in his works, as well as landscapes depicting social environments and even historical images.
Born in Santiago in 1985, Francisco Cabrera graduated from the School of Arts at the University of Playa Ancha in Valparaíso and did his graduate studies at the Pontificia Universidad Católica of Chile. His work has been presented in numerous solo and collective exhibitions in Argentina, Brazil, Chile, and the US. His most recent residency was in 2017 at the London Print Studio in the UK. Cabrera has been recognized in a number of juried exhibitions; he most recently received an honorable mention in "The 2nd New York International Miniature Print" in New York City.
