Lionel Chaltiel


Albuquerque, New Mexico

Was born in Boston, Mass in November 1966. After a few years transiting between Boston and Brussels he arrived in France where he studied Hotel and Restaurant Management at "Maximes Internationnal School of Paris" for three years. He moved back and forth to San Francisco, Barcelona SP, Los Angeles, NYC in the early nineties where he worked with Conceptual Artist (which back then was showing internationally) until 1997 when he moved to Las Vegas NV, Puerto Vallarta and Yelapa Mexico, Corsica, to eventually reach New Mexico in November 2006. He worked for an Art and Antiques Restoration shop which he learned the secrets of the trade and discovered the inner beauty of the raw natural wood; which paralleled the discovery of his own ability, joy and pleasure in creating wood carvings. Later in his career, he found that he was more attracted to figurative art with a Twist: a Twist that should be translated by a touch of Surrealism and a hint of absurdness. And with his hopes of sharing with the audience the beauty in it.
