Biografia
Sebastián Picker es un artista, cuya trayectoria esta basada en el aprendizaje empírico de las formas y los métodos, guiado únicamente por la necesidad de decir.
En su obra, el universo fabulatorio se manifiesta mediante la representación de sus personajes en contextos irreales, lo que le da un sentido místico. Una espiritual bondad basada en la representación del alma de las gentes y los objetos, y en el que se establece un nexo entre lo visual-icónico y lo estrictamente pictórico-formal, para distinguir dos planos de una sola obra, una interna y otra externa; el sentimiento y la imagen; un lugar en el que coinciden dos instancias complementarias: las emociones y su registro.
Obra en la que denota cómo, su proceso de creación, esta sujeto a una propuesta que configura signos, teniendo en cuenta las características de la técnica para lograr imágenes-plásticas mediante la liberación psicológica y conceptual de un mundo interior.

Sebastian Picker, a native of Santiago, Chile who fled his homeland during the reign of dictator Pinochet, uses his art to explore a range of socio-political issues. His works on canvas and paper often parody power, pomposity, and the folly of corrupt leadership in government, church, and business. Picker has been strongly influenced by Pinochet's political reign of terror, as well as time that the artist spent in Rome studying cartooning under Paulo DiGirolamo. Now living in Guadalajara, Mexico, Picker has exhibited his work in galleries and museums throughout Europe and the Americas, including the Galeria de Arte Nacional and Museo Carlos Cruz Diez in Caracas, Venezuela; Optica Gallery in Montreal, Canada; Galeria Skandia in Bogota, Columbia; Galeria 1-2-3, in Escultura, San Salvador; Kunstamt Kreutzberg in Berlin, Germany; Galeria D'Art Mestral in L'Escala, Spain; and Centre Culturel de Villeparisis in Paris, France. In the United States, his work has been exhibited at the Turner Carroll Gallery in Sante Fe, New Mexico; Arden Gallery in Boston; The Artist's Museum in Washington, D.C.; Federal Reserve Bank in Boston; Cleveland Museum of Contemporary Art in Cleveland, Ohio; and Brewster Arts Ltd. in New York, among many others. His work is in the collections of the Albuquerque Museum, in Albuquerque, New Mexico; El Museo Cultural de Santa Fe in Sante Fe, New Mexico; the Museum of Latin American Art in Long Beach, California; and the Fundacio Vila Casas in Barcelona, Spain.
