Azul Bleu : Javier Toro Blum

Born in 1983 in Santiago, Chile, Javier Toro Blum studied psychology and Fine Arts at the PontificiaUniversidad Católica de Chile and he holds a MA in Sculpture from The Royal College of Art, London.His work focuses on visual perception, phenomenology of light, darkness and space, and its subsequentemotional and psychological implications on the viewer. With particular interest in architecture, specificallyin those spaces where artworks have the capacity of mediate perception. This opens to the question ofhow a body of work - that is primarily formal and phenomenological - is able to permeate the culturalsphere. Consequently, the artwork allows a triangulation between space, viewer and the piece itself.
Javier work is present in the collections of the Royal College of Art, Princeton University, Museo de ArteModerno de Chiloé, White Elephant Bibliothek, Consejo para la Transparencia del Gobierno de Chile,Fundación Ca.Sa and Fundación Engel, as well as in private collections in Chile, Germany, France, UnitedStates, Spain, England, Mexico and Perú.
