How fast do hot cakes sell?

It depends on the season, but in summer they could reach 140 miles per hour or even more.

WHAT IS THE GREATEST INVENTION OF YOUR LIFETIME?

… it’s a boring answer but, I guess my Apple computer and Photoshop really changed my life and the manner in which I express my ideas.

WHAT IS THE SECRET TO A GOOD LIFE?

There’s a Chilean saying which answers that for me…”La buena vida y la poca verguenza” — which basically means to enjoy life as much as you can and don’t have any shame or embarrassment about it.

Since graduating from Finis Terrae University in Santiago, Chile, Sebastian (Tan) has experimented with a wide range of styles, subjects, materials, and mediums, producing a vast body of work that is consistently experimental and artistically diverse. He works in multiple layers to create a reality whose elements are in a controlled state of disorder, giving each viewer a personal interpretation and a distinct experience.

His work has been exhibited throughout Chile and New Zealand, as well as in Barcelona, New York City, and Buenos Aires. He has been awarded internships and artist residencies in Thailand, New Zealand, Chile and New York. His work has been published in several books on contemporary Latin American painters. Vargas creates custom artwork for Me and General Design projects, from large scale canvases and murals to smaller pieces.

Vargas resides in Santiago, Chile.
