I studied in a public school in Santiago de Chile. It was an all-boys school where my identity was always a problem, since I did not fit their standards of masculinity. However, in high school I was lucky enough to meet an arts teacher —Joanna Berríos— who helped me to develop more freely, and to understand that art was a tool for questioning, as well as for establishing links with others, and to this day she plays a fundamental role in my artistic production, and has even collaborated with me on some projects.
Following school, I studied visual arts at the University of Chile, where I became interested in techniques that use the body, such as performance art, and in practices such as ceramics. In the final year of my degree course, I studied at Francisco Brugnoli's experimental workshop, where I produced my first piece, ‘You will never be a Weye’, which would form the basis of dialogues interwoven into my later work.
