Interview with Artist Iván Navarro. Part 1/3 – Art Under Dictatorship. By We Are Our Choices

Iván Navarro is a Chilean artist known for his conceptual work and his use of fluorescent lights. From a family committed politically and supporting Salvador Allende, he was born in 1972 just a year before Augusto Pinochet’s coup d’état in 1973. From then, his father Mario Navarro a professor of graphic design and also know as Nakor a political cartoonist, loses his job and censors himself from doing caricatures. This situation first influenced Iván Navarro not to pursue an artistic path. Attracted by craft and wanting to work with his hands, Navarro’s wishes to learn carpentry. The lack of educational establishments in that field constrains him to choose an education in set design but through his exams he will end up studying art.

Iván Navarro est un artiste chilien connu pour son travail conceptuel et son utilisation des lampes fluorescentes. Issu d’une famille engagée politiquement et soutenant Salvador Allende, il est né en 1972 à peine un an avant le coup d’État d’Augusto Pinochet en 1973. Dès lors, son père Mario Navarro professeur de graphisme et également connu sous le nom de Nakor, caricaturiste politique, perd son travail et arrête de faire des caricatures. Cette situation a d’abord incité Iván Navarro à ne pas s’engager dans une voie artistique. Attiré par l’artisanat et désireux de travailler de ses mains, Navarro souhaite apprendre la menuiserie. Le manque d’établissements d’enseignement dans ce domaine le contraint à choisir une formation en scénographie mais ses examens le mèneront à étudier l’art.
