Lives & works in Mexico city, MX

Dulce Chacón is a Visual Artist and Illustrator, her work is a graphic reflection about the visual documentation and its methods of representation, having as objective to establish relations between the procedures generated in the translation of photographic images to the drawing (such as interpretation, evocation or allegory), the event to which they belong and the memory that the viewer has of them. The results are visual reconstructions that address events that have appeared in the media, and that make a dialogue between the representation of reality, multiple versions of the real and the imaginary.
