Francisco Perez aka TOTEM is a Chilean artist who has lived and worked in Berlin for over 20 years.
Originally trained as a theater actor and stage designer, he brings his emotions, thoughts and the madness of this vibrant city into his colorful paintings - the results are mainly large-scale, abstract human-animal symbioses that are internationally known.
The situations and the setting in which his characters find themselves are an expression of his personal view of society and its current events. A main feature of his artworks (installations, sculptures, paintings, furniture) is that he always strives to use recycled materials - as well as artifacts that can be found on the streets of Berlin.
His works has been Exhibited in New York, Mexico City, Santiago de Chile, Valparaiso, Freiburg am Breisgau, Ljubljiana and many more cities.
In the photo session you’ll find this pieces presented together with more of our autumn-winter season new pieces.
We selected, mixed, deconstructed and upcycled our typical materials such as tartan, leather and denim items, corsets, chains and studs.
