Juan Domingo Dávila is considered one of the most recognized Chilean artists within the international art world. His work can be found in major art institutions in the U.S, Europe, and Australia, such as the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York and in The Australian National Gallery, in Canberra. As a painter, he was part of the emblematic Escena de Avanzada Chilean art scene and, since then, has continued to disrupt and blur the boundaries of artistic styles. His paintings often feature iconic figures, references to pop art and comics, with a critical and corrosive view towards the conventional.
