Utilizing fragments of imagery borrowed from popular culture, Arturo Herrera creates collages, felt sculptures, and wall paintings that lie on the shifting border between legibility and abstraction. Born in Caracas, Venezuela in 1959, Herrera received his bachelor’s degree from the University of Tulsa and an MFA from the University of Illinois at Chicago. He has exhibited widely in galleries and museums throughout the United States and Europe. He currently lives and works in Berlin.
