Antonio Vargas Artist Bio:

It is proposed in this work to discuss the contemporary image reception on the visual means (being on television, internet, advertise boards or on artistic objects) through concept questioning such as perception, identity, passivity, dormancy and mainly between pleasure and repulsion. In a grotesque image, the beauty disguises the improbable, sordid and stupidity. When it is looked at a grotesque image, the pleasure and happiness present themselves at the first moment. The same does not happen with most of the images entailed by the publicity that hide behind the glamour the economical system perversities and contradictions? And, it does not happen equally with the way as the images are entailed on television news, they are always aseptic and pleasurable the same? I think it is what happens. Therefore, the grotesque was never so contemporaneous. Born: Brazil, 1961. Education: Facultad de Bellas Artes /Universidad Complutense de Madrid-Spain , PhD (1992) Universidade Federal do Rio Grande do Sul-UFRGS-Brazil (1986) Media: sculpture, painting, digital print, multimidia, costume, scenography.
