Lucas Gutierrez by Vitali Gelwich – Bio

 


Lucas Gutierrez (Argentina) is a digital artist and Industrial Designer based in Berlin. He has been engaged in various disciplines, from lectures, workshops and audiovisual performances to video art projects focused on the new paradigms of Digital Culture. Deeply involved in the remix culture and real time AV session projects in which he blends influences of different contexts – from post-work anthropology to the abstract quotes from 3D modeling for Industrial Design. His narrative is often quoting current social fears and dystopias, but mostly using the language of colorful, chaotic metaphysics.

He has participated and exhibited his works in well known festivals such as: Offf-Festival,
Creamfields, Mira Festival, Panoramica Argentina, Genius Loci Weimar, BNT-Trimarchi, among others.
Member of Fungo (Lisbon) as the Video Content Director and part of Selam X (Berlin).

Within the last years, Lucas had work with clients like: Nike, Puma, Vodafone, Focus Magazine, Wacker Chemie AG., Red Bull, Budweiser to name just a few.
