Santi Nam – Miss Read

Santi Nam

My name is Santi Nam, I am a 2D illustrator and animator. Through my artistic practice, I explore my mixed identity as a queer Chilean-Korean artist and the tensions that arise between the rural context in which I grew up, the biodiversity of the natural habitats of my country, and the effects of the globalized world we live in. My work encompasses a wide variety of media and techniques, ranging from clay illustrations and digital animations to flipbooks and fanzines. I have had the honor of collaborating with other artists and cultural organizations in the creation of publications, events, and exhibitions. Additionally, I have shown my work in various art book fairs in Latin America, the USA, and Europe.
