Agustin “Lucho” Pozo
a l e g o r i a

January 29-March 12, 2010

Agustin 'Lucho' Pozo began his studies in his native country of Chile at Universidad de Chile, Escuela de Bellas Artes. He then moved to Los Angeles in 1968, and later traveled throughout the United States spending time in New York and New Jersey, and hiking every national park in the continental United States. His travels acquainted him with the vastness and beauty of the wild areas of this country, and also juxtaposed in his mind the destructive nature of our growth and expansion on the environment as witnessed in major metropolitan areas. This experience, along with growing up in Chile with its tortured past, has framed Pozo's position and career as an artist. His current series of paintings are a departure from his earlier, more abstract works, and combine figures, colors, symbols, and textures to explore global political and sociological states-of-affairs.
Pozo received his BFA and MFA degrees from the San Francisco Art Institute. His work has been exhibited in the United States, Chile, Mexico, and Norway, and he is represented by Bucheon Gallery, San Francisco, California. He teaches at the College of Marin, Kentfield, California.
