Biography

Patrick Hamilton

Patrick Hamilton Madrid, Spain.

Leuven, Belgium, 1974.

He studied Arts at the University of Chile. Hamilton's work breaks the historical boundaries between the past of the Chilean dictatorship and the democratic present. From key concepts such as inequality, myth, history and work, he achieves an aesthetic and critical reflection of the neoliberal system initiated in the dictatorship of Augusto Pinochet in 1973.

Through languages such as design, art and advertising, he uses the most diverse visual resources - from painting to urban intervention, through photography, object and installation - to focus his reflections on the analysis of the tensions that occur between advertising and violence, work and leisure, cosmetics and power.

Patrick Hamilton currently lives and works between Madrid, Spain and Santiago de Chile.
