Lives and works in Montevideo, Uruguay

 

Guillermo Garcia Cruz (Montevideo, Uruguay, 1988) lives and works in Montevideo, Uruguay. Through the painting, sculpture, photography, performance and installation, the Uruguayan based artist creates an architectural universe that reflects the limits of the spaces - real and metaphorical. His language is based on research on the places that will be occupied - in the city through interventions and actions, and in canvas through the paintings.

 

Among his latest exhibitions, highlighting: Espacios sin título IV, Fundación Iturria, Montevideo, Uruguay; Evidencias, Espacio de Arte Contemporaneo, Montevideo, Uruguay; SERES, Centro Cultural de Mexico, Montevideo, Uruguay; Episodio 3, Pera de Goma, Montevideo Uruguay; Revolutum, A Hispanic Heritage Exhibition, Harlem School for the Arts, New York, USA
