Manuel Martinez Contreras

Manuel Martinez Contreras

As a contemporary craftsman Manuel is interested in the contemplation of the landscape and how it influences the local culture.

After visiting different regions of Chile looking to learn about their cultures and capturing images that examine the places and the experience of travelling, his work has been nourished; inspiring him to create different utilitarian objects with a territorial identity.

He seeks to establish a dialogue between nature and the daily rituals, such as food and clothing, that the inhabitants of a community develop.
