Aldo Chaparro (b.1965) is a Mexican/Peruvian artist whose work focuses in the use of sculpture and painting to explore form in post-industrial ways. He currently lives and works between Mexico City, Los Angeles, Madrid and Lima.
Chaparro explores form through void, matter and the human body using quick processes to transform prefabricated materials into unique objects.
Using elements commonly used for construction, he creates forms in balance by manipulating and subtracting matter. Much of his work is based on quick processes, which forces him to have a close relationship with his materials. One of the premises of Chaparro's work is the concept of time and his relationships with prefabricated materials, such as beams and sheets. Chaparro is represented by the gallery by Pierre Huber in Switzerland, the Casado Santapau Gallery in Spain, Lucía de la Puente in Lima, Galerie Isa in Mumbai, FIFI projects in Monterrey and OMR in Mexico.
