Chilean born artist Basco has been contributing his unique street art and graffiti to public canvases all over South America from a very young age and in recent years has had a series of successful gallery appearances around the world. Donde Esta Mi Corazon follows him on a tour through the cultures and cities that are home to the most exciting artists in South America. Including pages of photos, collages, murals and collaborations with Herbert Baglione, Agotok, OS Gemeos, Paloma and others. Bascos work captures the heart of his native Chile with his simple yet expressive faces, skeletons and animals reminiscent of religious icons and amulets brought to life through an expert use of color and texture. Donde Esta Mi Corazon represents another triumphant transition from street to gallery from a DIY artist whose talent could not be contained. Basco is certainly among the most relevant living artists in South America.
