Pier Stockholm

Pier Stockholm b. 1977 in Lima, Peru. Lives and Works in Paris, France. The artist's iconography is a visit to the utopia of modernist architecture, Christian religious fervor, and the adolescent imagination that glamorizes one's own beliefs. Stockholm has a vivid interest in colour, structure and volumetric line drawing. His proposal to contemporary drawing is a fully-fledged achievement honed the outset of his artistic process around 2000. This can be related training as architect in Lima, Peru, a lingering trace. He has also started to find ways to circumvent the strict conceptual, mathematical constructs of line and plane, to gradually build a range of allusion to project something different to a state of technical coolness and a climate of impersonality. Stockholm has always had a tendency to live within his head, what became most profound in his thinking was letting 'the mind' shift in its contemporary matrix of chemically-prevented pitfalls. This became the horizon against which he pitted a utopian vision in which form and function are precisely conjoined with feeling and freedom of association.
