Simón Vega
Simón Vega creates drawings, ephemeral sculptures and installations inspired in the informal,
self made architecture and vendor carts found in the streets and marginal zones of El Salvador
and Central America. These works, assembled with wood, cardboard, plastic and found
materials often parody famous Modernist and mythological buildings and cities, surveillance
systems as well as high-tech robots and satellites developed by NASA and the Soviet Space
Program during the Cold War. Thus creating an ironic and humorous fusion between first and third
world, while commenting on the effects of that conflict in today#x2019s Central America.
Born in San Salvador, El Salvador in 1972, Simon Vega graduated in Fine Arts at the University
of Veracruz in Mexico in 2000 and received a Master´s degree in Contemporary Arts from the
Complutense University in Madrid in 2006.
He has exhibited his work extensively in Europe, the United States and Latin America, including
the 55th Venice Biennial in Italy, the IX Havana Biennial, in Cuba, the Museo del Barrio's "The
S-Files" show in New York in 2011and at the Bronx River Art Center in 2008, both in New York
City, as well as at the Hilger BROT Kunsthalle in Vienna, Austria (2010 amp 2012). He currently
lives in La Libertad, El Salvador.
