Jaime Ferrer

Ferrer, was born in the Chilean capital of Santiago and studied there at the School of Fine Arts (Escuela de Bellas Artes), where he developed thanks to Augusto Barcia, Adolfo Couve, Luis Lobos, Rodolfo Opazo and his contemporary friends like, Matias Pinto D’Aguiar, Jorge Tacla and many others of that wonderful generation.

Upon completion of his studies, he painted and showed his work locally while longing to travel and explore beyond his native land.

Since 1982 he has made the United States his new center of operation where he has resided while painting and exhibited his work in the U.S.A., Canada, Italy. Japan and at his home in Chile.

In 1987 he began a sabbatical in Italy, where he traveled throughout the country and painted. Here he experienced for the first time the ties that people have to their pictorial culture.

Ferrer’s works are included in the collections of The Housatonic Museum of Art in Bridgeport Conn., as well as in The Mattatuck Museum in Waterbury, Conn. The State of Connecticut commissioned Ferrer to create a mural for the Windham Regional Vocational-Technical School in the city of Willimantic.

He currently lives in Miami, Fla. where he creates, teaches and serves as an art consultant for the private sector. He is involved in the development of diverse projects including sculpture/music media events which range from sculpture to painting and mixed media.
