Lobsang Durney is a contemporary Chilean artist from Valparaiso, Chile, who currently resides in Barcelona, Spain.  In his work, Lobsang focuses on painting post-apocalyptic surrealist worlds, where he mixes realistic and imaginary subjects and storylines.

Lobsang’s work is uniquely cinematic, with each work having its own storyline, its context, protagonists and reality. His subjects are often biomechanical contraptions with images reminiscent of the Mad Max movie series.

Microbarrio is a play on words between micro, which in Chile means bus, and the word neighborhood, a group of people who live in a community. It is a painting that essentially tries to capture the city of Valparaíso. The Mercedes Benz bus with those colors was very characteristic of the port city for several decades in the past. There is an intentional search for the precariousness given by the violent presence of the sea, and the solitude in which the dwellings, the houses are found, above this old public transport, but which protects them and gives them a space to exist.
