Federico Infante

Federico Infante received his BFA from Finis Terrae University (Santiago, Chile) in 2002 and graduated in Spring 2013 with his MFA in Illustration from the School of Visual Arts in New York.
He was the recipient of the Uanlane Foundation Scholarship (2012), the Conicyt Scholarship (2009), and the Juan Downey Grant (2004). He has had several successful solo and group exhibitions in Chile. He has been working with the gallery BDG since Spring 2013, his work has been adopted into private collections across the US and internationally, including France, Belgium, Germany and Singapore.
His works, greatly inspired by the Chilean landscape, are unique in their juxtaposition of abstraction with figurative sections and detailed architectural images. From a hazy, unclear mist, a figure holding a musical instrument might emerge. From the darkness, we might see a set of stairs, rendered with incredible precision, leading into the unknown. He seamlessly blends the genres together to create stunning works on paper and canvas.
