Cristina Pizarro was born in 1947 in Santiago de Chile. After studying art at the University of Chile, she went to Europe in 1975. This experience, along with trips to the United States, lead her to deepen her personal practice and the sculptural language of the recent and remote past. Since the 1980s, the artist has participated in many collective and personal exhibitions. Her rich sculptural production is generally destined for public spaces to which she flanks a strong commitment to environmental stewardship, leading her to curate projects and exhibitions in support of the cause.  She is co-founder of the Corporación Cultural Artistas Pro Ecología in 1993.
