"His work develops between the figurative and the fantastic, creating new allegorical realities using elements such as toys, ladders, wheels, cars with artifacts and machines. Barra's figuration is characterized by a detailed drawing and by the use of volume as a resource to give embodiment to his characters, which he inserts into landscapes without perspective ".
Oscar Barra was born on September 19, 1964 in Santiago, Chile. He studied Art at the University of Concepción between 1986 and 1991. His work has been exhibited both in national and international galleries, individually and collectively, making a name for himself both at home and abroad.
His work reflects constant work with a tool that is essential for an artist and that is in danger of extinction; the imagination. “Having imagination is not inconsequential. Imagination is decisive for any manifestation of our life "
