Fernando Bryce

Peru / °1965 / wikipedia
Fernando Bryce is considered one of the most recognized Peruvian artists in the scene of national and international contemporary art; he continues reproducing documents and objects in order to build new forms of representation of historical memory. After an arduous review of pamphlets, official documents, press images, propaganda or advertisements, selected after what he referred to as mimetic analysis, Bryce reorders and display them. Using the brush, he appropriates and gives them a new critical reading, peppered with humor and irony.
After some years studying in Fine Arts of Catholic University, Lima, Peru, and take a painting workshop with Leslie Lee in Lima, he studied studying Plastic Arts at the Université Paris VIII and Ecole des Beaux Arts-Paris with Christian Boltanski.
