ADRIAN ARIAS is an American-Peruvian prize-winning poet, visual artist, curator and cultural promoter, working and living in The Bay Area of San Francisco, CA since 2000, with experience in visual arts, video-installations, photography, poetry and cultural promotion. His visual art, like his poetry, explores the absurd, the sensuality of elements, and the connection between reality and dreams. He uses found objects, recycling its content, creating boxes, book-objects, clothes, doors, drawings, photographs and writing poetry on canvas. He also creates pieces of video-art as "Frida in the mirror", official selection of the San Francisco International Film Festival and winner of the best music-video at the Berkeley Film & Video Festival, and Altar-Installations every year since 2003 at SOMARTs Cultural Center in San Francisco. In Peru Adrian is considered, with Susana Aragon, one of the pioneers of the Peruvian Video Art. As Arias & Aragon, they win 2 times the golden medal at the International Photography Salon of Japan.
