Lobsang Durney was born in Quilpué on June 9, 1976. He graduated with a degree in architecture from Technical University Federico Santa María and worked extensively in the advertising workshops of his father learning the technique of screen printing and others.
“My experience with art begins as a child. Encouraged by my mother and influenced by my father, a painter and screen-printer, I started working early in our advertising workshop. I went from being an apprentice to an active collaborator in the creation of graphic pieces, which made me learn this trade and take interest in painting, advertising graphics and reproduction techniques.
“In my youth I won several painting contests, and this recognition motivated me to stay on track. Later I studied architecture in Federico Santa María Technical University in Valparaiso, Chile. I wanted to learn how to combine the creative capacity of art and scientific knowledge, two commonly distinct and distanced areas. The use of digital tools identify my work, so I became familiar with the new techniques of representation, without abandoning traditional painting. I had the opportunity to give workshops and talks at prestigious universities in Chile. I have developed four important exhibitions to date, which are mostly related to the port city of Valparaíso, where I lived for many years.”
