Roberto Sebastian Antonio Matta Echaurren was born in Santiago, Chile in 1911. He studied architecture at the Universidad Catolica in Santiago. In 1933 Matta traveled to Paris and worked for 2 years as a draftsman in the Paris studio of architect Le Corbusier. While visiting his aunt in Madrid he met Federico Garcia Lorca and Pablo Neurada, Neruda introduced him to Salvador Dali and Andre Breton. Impressed by Matta's drawings, Breton invited him to join the Surrealist group in 1937. Influenced by his association with the Surrealists and by Marcel Duchamp's theories of movement and process, Matta began to explore the realm of the subconscious and to develop imagery of cosmic creation and destruction. In 1938 he moved to the USA and his art flowered as he changed from print maker to oil painting. Matta is represented in most of the world's major museums.
