Lives and works in Santiago, Chile.
Lorenzo Moya was born in Santiago, Chile in 1967. He studied architecture before devoting himself to art. He received his degree in art from the University of Chile.
His style is quintessentially Latin. Mystical figures are superimposed. Mysterious landscapes and theatrical architecture display seemingly contradictory states of dreaming and reality. His surrealistic scenes serve as stage sets for the mind. Certain objects are recurring – the table with a white linen cloth, the narrow streets with light streaming out from doorways, and outdated ships, planes, or cars, waiting. In Moya’s world, all is waiting for something to happen. Trails and urban landscapes are wrapped in the magic of the unexpected. Light and water are important elements - his paintings are pleas to safeguard the planet. According to Moya, "Painting light is impossible. It’s like painting an angel." His work proves otherwise. Women are prominent in many of his paintings - strong, larger than life, but graceful. They are enmeshed in the scene, with the sea or land visible through their skirts.
His work has been exhibited in the U.S., South America, and Central America.
