Eugenio Dittborn

° 1943

Born in Santiago (CL), lives in Santiago (CL).

Eugenio Dittborn was born in Chile in 1943 (making him a thirty-year old witness of the military coup in 1973), and continues to live and work in his native country; it is inevitable that his work should bear the traces of living through Chile’s many political upheavals - in fact, they have often been the source of inspiration for some of the artist’s greatest works. During the Pinochet dictatorship [1973-1990] Dittborn started developing his strategy of so-called “Airmail Paintings”, sending his paintings [often serially executed on large sheets of Kraft paper] around the world via airmail.
