Sebastián Picker (1956) is a Chilean artist with an extensive international career in the world of painting and visual arts. During the 1970s, he began painting and moved to the United States, where he studied at the Art Institute of Boston and later at the Massachusetts College of Art. Since then, Picker has participated in various exhibitions, individually and collectively, in various galleries and art spaces in the United States, Europe and Latin America. Over the years, his work has stood out for containing endless reflections and questions about man, society and our current way of living.
