Von Bartha (Basel) is representing the artists Felipe Mujica and Ricardo Alcaide.
Felope Mujica was born in 1974 in Santiago. His work blends different practices such as installation, drawing, temporary sculptures and engravings. Influenced by international artistic modernity, his work tunes art movements to the international scale along with the political and social situation of his country, namely the political movement of the 1960s and 1970s. He has been living and working in New York since 2000. Ricardo Alcaide was born in 1967 in Caracas, Venezuela. He lives and works in Sao Paulo. His work explores artificial environments using minimalist aesthetics, producing works that explore urban and architectural issues while reflecting social questions such as ghettoes, exclusion or marginality.
