Read about Francisco Mery
Francisco Mery is a Chilean artist whose paintings reflect the artist's interest in rendering his subjects in a hyperrealist manner, where one can perceive the influence of Claudio Bravo’s work on the artist. He studied graphic design and then moved on to painting, a self-taught discipline. He has worked in different series where he has focused on subjects like paper, animals, landscapes, and architectural spaces. Still, within his hyperrealist style, Mery has also created pieces that touch on surrealism. Pieces like “Liberator” and “Criador de Caballos” deliver a skyscape where floating islands are the stage for farmers to carry out their daily tasks. These are beautiful pieces that carry a sense of irony and humor.
