The New York Times describes him as “humorously avant-garde”, while ID Magazine put his picture on their cover and simply wrote: “Sebastian Errazuriz meet Fame”. Over the past several years, Chilean-born, New York-based artist and designer Sebastian Errazuriz has been critically acclaimed by the specialized press for his immensely creative and beautifully crafted works. The variety and depth of his talent has surpassed the design world to be featured globally in mediums such as CNN, The Wall Street Journal, and The Financial Times, highlighting his thought provoking works ranging from Christian Popsicles to the Occupy Movement.
“The Journey of Sebastian Errazuriz” is his first monograph and will be published by Gestalten. The book includes two conversations, one between Errazuriz and the artist Tom Sachs, and the other with Errauriz and MoMa senior curator Paola Antonelli. Art critic Christian Viveros-Faune writes the introduction.
Ironic, sophisticated, precise—the work of Sebastian Errazuriz moves elegantly between art and design. His humor reminds us of the visual exercises of Irwin Wurm while his morbid charm and elegant wit suggests a conceptual kinship with artists Maurizio Cattelan and Gabriel Orozco. His work has already been shown at over 40 exhibitions in cities including New York, Paris, Tokyo, and Barcelona alongside design legends such as Ingo Maurer, Marcel Wanders, and the Campana brothers.
