BIOGRAFÍA

Ignacio Gana es un escultor chileno afincado en Los Ángeles cuya obra es de estilo figurativo, con una elegante sensualidad.

Cada pieza tiene una narrativa fuerte, representativa de su espectacular imaginación y apreciación de la forma humana. Las hermosas figuras que crea son la encarnación del ocio y la relajación.

Las pinturas y esculturas de Gana se encuentran en colecciones y museos como: el Museo de Arte Moderno Latinoamericano (MOLAA) en California, el Museo Ralli Marbella en España, el Museo Ralli en Chile y el Guggenheim en Venecia. Recientemente nombrado uno de los 18 artistas más influyentes de Miami, Gana también fue elegido como el artista oficial de los Premios Grammy Latinos en 2017. Ignacio Gana actualmente trabaja y vive en Los Ángeles, California.
