Arturo Kameya examines the narratives and myths that comprise different versions of history, with a distinct focus on the legacy of indigenous cultures. Kameya works in various media, including plaster, acrylic, film, and printmaking, often arranging works together to create larger installations. Objects are personified as witnesses of history and Kameya imbues them with a new life, beyond their existence as material evidence of the past.
Kameya is a current resident of the Rijksakademie van Beeldende Kunsten, Amsterdam (NL) graduating in 2020. He attended the Pontifical Catholic University of Peru in Lima (PE) from 2002-2008. In 2012, Kameya was awarded second place at the ICPNA National Photography Show in Lima (PE). He has had solo exhibitons at Alliance Française, Lima (PE), Ginsberg Galeria, Lima (PE); Hotel Maria Kapel, Hoorn (NL); Wu Gallery, Lima (PE); Galería del Centro Cultural Británico de San Juan de Lurigancho, Lima (PE), among others.
