Artist Biography

Rafael Gaete was born in Santiago, Chile on July 16th, 1974. At age fifteen he experienced an important exhibition of Roberto Matta, a Chilean artist, at the Museo de Bellas Artes in Santiago. He was struck by Matta’s perception of space, and that is where his love for Surrealism began. Rafael began painting seriously in 1999 and his first exhibition, “Microemotions and Microsensations” was presented in the gallery of the Marriot Hotel (Santiago, Chile) in 2001. His drawing and paintings have been inspired by Surrealism and Abstract Expressionism. Gaete resides and work in Santa Barbara, California since 2003.
