Born in 1970, Chile
Lives and works in Santiago, Chile.
Drawing and illustration are at the crux of César Gabler’s practice. The simplicity of the images, distinctive with their use of brushes and Indian ink on paper, is in contrast to their complex imagery, which explores the historical and political past of both Chile and Latin America. The artist often makes large scale installations, where the drawings occupy the walls and interact across them.
César Gablar has exhibited extensively in Chile, including the Museum of Contemporary Art, Quintanormal, Santiago; Centro Extensión U.C, Santiago; Sala Gasco Arte Contemporáneo, Santiago; The Museum of Contemporary Art, Valdivia, Chile. His exhibition at Cecilia Brunson Projects, London, in January 2017 was the first time his work had been exhibited outside Chile.
