Enrique Zañartu Biography

Paris, France, 1921 ? Chile, 2000

An established Chilean artist, Enrique Zañartu creates the illusion of spaces of psychological tension through organic rather than figurative objects.

Born in Paris, Zañaratu moved to Chile in 1938, establishing himself as an artist. In 1944 he travelled to New York to study with Stanley W. Hayter in the Atelier 17, becoming associate director of the studio in New York until 1949, and subsequently in the Paris studio from 1950 to 1957. He taught printmaking, painting, and drawing at various prestigious institutions.
