art and a yama

While in the fine country of Chile, we were able
to get our own personal tour of the Republica 2110-3010
art exhibit at the Centro Extension Balmaceda
in the equally fabulous Parque Quinta Normal(fabulous in a different
way.. hint: the llama aka Yama and a wide variety of kissing
people/crazy bike vehicles/dangerous playgrounds/etc.)

So we are on the same page here... let's flash back to this. While in
Chile we were able to get a very special showing of art by
the very same artist, Piguan, as well as some other
wonderful French and Chilean artists.
The Chilean Artists, who make up Kiltrv were sweet enough
to walk us through. Such a treat!

Some highlights..
Apparently this box had quite the drama while traveling from
France to Chile. (There is the flyer at the top left.. for more info,

As I have mentioned many times before, regardless of the
level of artsy fartsy-ness of your activity, it is
extremely hard to look cool/artsy/angst filled when you have revealed
your true self to the world (think human jungle gym - below).
The front room of the gallery space.
Pins in the artist's heart. I feel you!
Amazing shoes. Part of a piece by Nicolas Thomas.
Wall of mixed screen prints. yum.
A beautiful piece by Piguan: a starving mother
and child with ipod and diamonds.
It is most interesting that the the word 'bling' can truly
transcend any language barrier and was used
several times in describing this piece.

The awesome style of Carole Bielicki..
Of course women will bring peace and beauty to this crazy world!

And the Parque Quinta Normal.
These images hardly need description.
Such simple beauty.

And then we hauled ourselves over to Bellavista to see
a remote collection of the same artists.
Even Ava is inspired.
Wrought iron incredible.
More works of Piguan.
Please support these artists! Buy tees from Ambiguous!
Buy tees from Piguan or other Kiltrv artist,
Diego(who is also darling) here. Or, here.


  1. Beautiful! and I love the shot of Ava taking in the gallery!

  2. The llama was pretty alltime - the art was great - the whole experience was awesome. People in Chile are pretty mellow and cool.
