Arturo Herrera

Utilizing fragments of imagery borrowed from popular culture, Arturo Herrera creates collages, sculptures, and wall paintings that lie on the shifting border between legibility and abstraction. Born in Caracas, Venezuela in 1959, Herrera received his bachelor’s degree from the University of Tulsa and an MFA from the University of Illinois at Chicago. He has exhibited widely in galleries and museums throughout the United States and Europe. Recent solo exhibitions have been staged at Corbett vs. Dempsey in Chicago and Thomas Dane Gallery in London in 2012, and at the Americas Society in New York in 2011. He is the recipient of the following fellowships: Guggenheim Foundation; DAAD; Pollock Krasner Foundation; and the Louis Comfort Tiffany Foundation, among others. He currently lives and works in Berlin.
