Federico Infante is an painter born in 1982 Santiago, Chile. Currently living in New York. Infante received his BFA from Finis Terrae University (Santiago, Chile) in 2002 and graduated in Spring 2013 with his MFA in Illustration from theSchool of Visual Arts in New York.
His works, greatly inspired by the Chilean landscape, are unique in their juxtaposition of abstraction with figurative sections and detailed architectural images. From a hazy, unclear mist, a figure holding a musical instrument might emerge. From the darkness, we might see a set of stairs, rendered with incredible precision, leading into the unknown. He seamlessly blends the genres together to create stunning works on paper and canvas. via
I grew up in a place where I was forced to develop my powers of contemplation. The magnificence of the Chilean landscape changes and challenges your perspective. It made me think clearly about my decision to become an artist. For me, this was the right path.
New York and its people have altered my creative process in a beautiful and positive way. Hidden in this city are images more mysterious than any I could ever imagine. The challenge of a new painting lies in each new day.
