Antonio Chaurand (Celaya, Mexico, 1989) lives and works in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico, where 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. In 2014 Chaurand has been 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 medium by invocating the intimacy of casual individuals of the 21st century.
