Aldo Chapparo (b. 1965 Lima, Peru, lives and works in Mexico City) is a trained sculptor and best known for his distorted stainless steel sculptures and is known for expanding the boundaries that separate art from other disciplines, making of this frontier his central theme. Throughout his career, under the influence of artists like Michaelangelo Pistolleto, Robert Morris, and Jorge Luis Borges, reflection and mirroring have been key points of his investigation.
But no matter which type of medium he chooses for his artworks, his practice centers around a process of capturing a moment of the present. He developed a performance-like transformation process in which he unleashes the energy and force from his body onto stainless steel, wood or canvases. Chaparro likes to capture movement and the energy of a moment to create an abstract relief on a two-dimensional surface
