Jose Miguel Marty

Jose Miguel Marty is a Chilean artist who has been working on the revitalisation of popular craftsmanship techniques for six years, specifically on Chilean indigenous basket-making, using local raw materials.

In his work MAPUKURAM, he builds up these sculptural volumes by mixing different kinds of basket-making´s techniques. Jose Miguel tries to avoid any functional characteristic on those art pieces to rescue the sculpture’s contemplative properties.
