It is an artwork designed for San Potito Sannitico´s town council roof, in the framework of 2018 Fate Festival. Considering the relevance of working at a public building located in the town´s historical centre, the idea was to transform this functional space in a point that enhances the imagination of its citizens.Inspired on our universe celestial bodies’ movement, Meta-Eclissi is an invented graphic-cosmic phenomenon that aims to make the building disappear, transforming it into a reference point that contrasts with the surrounding landscape.
Matu (Santiago, Chile, 1980) studied architecture in Santiago, Chile. While studying, he explored several artistic crafts, such as carpentry, scenography, sculpture and painting. During his search, in a street art graphic workshop, he met the muralist artist Mono González, with whom he worked as assistant and collaborator for a couple of years, in different art projects. In 2010, Matu’s continuos search for innovation, took him to Argentina, where he started painting his first murals and developing an independent artistic career. In 2012, back in his home country, he created graphic artwork, exhibiting in different cities in Chile (La Mente es una Plaza, 2010; Derribando la Pirámide, 2012; Microdespertares, 2014; Las cosas son lo que parecen, 2016; Descomposiciones, 2016) and in Toulouse, France (Ritmos del Sur, 2017).In 2016, he founded Brigada SOROJCHI, a working art team along with Tono Cruz and Mono González, in La Paz, Bolivia.In 2017, he participated in an artistic residence in France, traveling to various french cities to paint murals with three other Latin-American artists.Later that year, in collaboration with Tono Cruz and Giuliana Blee, he developed MDT (Mal di Testa), a printing workshop located in San Potito Sannitico, Italy.Matu’s murals can be seen in several countries in South America and Europe, among them: Argentina, Bolivia, Uruguay, Italy, France, Spain and Germany.
