Antonio Chaurand (Celaya, Mexico, 1989) lives and works in Mexico City. He studied visual arts bachelor’s degree (Guanajuato University). In 2011, he has been awarded with the first place at the Guanajuato state painting contest Luis García Guerrero.
He is currently granted with the FONCA/CONACULTA Scholarship for young creators.
In his ultra-realistic paintings he excels at capturing artificial lighting, depicting rich night and interior scenes. Calling up Hopper or Sorolla, Antonio Chaurand renews a traditional oil painting medium by invocating the intimacy of casual individuals of the 21st century.
