Artist: Matías Sierra

I was born in Argentina and from my childhood I had a love for art and its creation. My relationship with art began in school and continued in a private studio where I worked with different materials and media like ink, paint, drawing, and modeling with clay. At thirteen or fourteen years old clay became my choice and it still is. I am a self-taught artist. I don’t have a background in art studies. Since 2005 I have lived in Montréal, Canada. I’ve presented my work in several group shows. In 2012 I had my first solo exhibition and another in 2014.

My inspiration is everywhere. Sometimes it comes from myself–from my own experiences or general ideas I pick up. I take these ideas, model them in my mind, and sculpt them with clay. I work directly from mind to clay, making no draft in paper or digital mode. The body is the source to express my ideas.

Artist: Matías Sierra

I was born in Argentina and my first contact with art was at school when I was six years old. At nine I began to work at an art studio with various media: paint, ink, charcoal, clay, etc. I developed a surreal style from the beginning. At thirteen or fourteen years old I worked almost exclusively with clay and I continue to do so. My artwork centers around the body and its parts. In several of my sculptures, the hands are the main subject. I can’t give a reason for this. People always ask me why and I never have a response. Some ideas for my work are born from my own life experience or feeling. Others are simple ideas.

For the past seven years, I have lived in Montreal, Canada, developing my artistic career. I did my first solo exhibition two years ago and two others with my studio colleagues. I am self-taught. I don’t have a background in art studies.
