Cesar Cornejo's work explores the relationship between art, architecture and society. He has been influenced by having lived and worked in four different cultures: Peru, Japan, England and USA, having each of them influenced the way he thinks about art and how he makes it.
The development of an expression that combines these different elements, is an ongoing process placed at the core of his studio practice. As a result he produces multilayered pieces that while addressing specific problems that may refer to his native Peru, are also open to multiple readings and interpretations that make them accessible to broader audiences in international contexts.
He works in several medias including; sculpture, installation, drawing and photography and is also interested in creating alternative models that can promote social change through the arts. His ongoing project Puno Museum of Contemporary Art does this through proposing an alternative model of museum which places community at its center.
