Matta, Roberto

About the artist

Born in Chile, Matta became an important figure in the evolution of Surrealism, painting dreamlike, internal “inscapes” early on and, later, intense compositions reflecting the psychic damage caused by Europe’s ongoing wars. Shifting biomorphic shapes painted or drawn in vivid colours populated Matta’s often-apocalyptic scenes, conveying confusion and angst.  (Infomation courtesy of Artsy)
