Sebastián Vargas (aka TAN) is a prolific Chilean painter and sculptor. ‘Sebastián Vargas work emerges from an archive of visual obsessions in which many of the icons of popular imagery have their moment. He gathers, selects and intervenes images obtained from the Internet, advertising, magazines, television, photographic records and, above all, the visual data base of his imagination.’ (extracted from the book: ‘Pintura Contemporánea Latinoamericana’ by Edward Shaw).
TAN has participated in many solo and group exhibitions in different galleries, centers and universities around the world. He has also served as a teacher of graphics and screen printing in several art schools and has attended important artist residencies in Chile, New Zealand, Thailand and New York. dRh Global Media represents TAN in the U.S.
