Arturo Herrera (b. 1959, Caracas, Venezuela) currently lives and works in Berlin. He studied at the University of Tulsa and the University of Illinois at Chicago. Utilizing fragments of imagery borrowed from popular culture, Herrera creates collages, felt sculptures, and wall paintings that lie on the shifting border between legibility and abstraction. He has exhibited widely in galleries and museums throughout the United States and Europe. Recent solo exhibitions have been staged at the Linda Pace Foundation in San Antonio; Corbett vs. Dempsey in Chicago; at Thomas Dane Gallery in London in 2012; and at the Americas Society in New York in 2011.
