Chilean born, New York based artist and designer Sebastian Errazuriz was raised in London; took art classes in Washington DC, film courses in Edinburgh, and obtained a design degree in Santiago. He later received his Master’s in Fine Arts from New York University. He currently lives and works in New York with parallel workshops in Santiago.
A prodigious and obsessive workaholic, Sebastian became, at the age of 28, the second living South American artist to have work auctioned at Sotheby’s Important Twentieth Century Design year of sale. In 2007 Errazuriz was selected one of the top emerging international designers by I.D. Magazine. In 2010 he received the title of Chilean Designer of the Year. In 2011 he was selected for the Compasso d’ Oro and at the end of that year his work was the talk of Design Miami Basel.
