Luis Mandiola Uribe is a Chilean artist who has explored various forms of expression, such as sculpture, painting, drawing and engraving.

He was born in Santiago in 1934 and showed his interest in art early on.

He studied at the School of Fine Arts of the University of Chile, where he learned from Jorge Caballero, a renowned painter and professor.

He also entered Taller 99, an engraving workshop founded by Nemesio Antúnez.

Mandiola developed his skills in ceramics, which led him to experiment with volume and form.

He became a professor of ceramics and later of sculpture in the Department of Applied Arts of the Faculty of Fine Arts of the University of Chile.

He has received several awards for his work, such as the Honorary Award from the University Hall in 1955, the Third Prize in the Official Hall in 1957 and the Second Prize in the CAP Competition in 1966.

One of its most distinctive series is the large heads, made of ceramic or paper mache, with colorful and graphic elements.

These heads have a naive and playful appearance, but also convey a sense of irony and criticism. Mandiola has created a unique and personal style that combines different techniques and materials, expressing his vision of the world and human nature.

Regarding his teaching career, Mandiola was a professor at the Ceramic Workshop of the Faculty of Arts of the University of Chile from 1960 to 1974.

He continued working on his plastic production and teaching various courses and workshops at the most prestigious universities in Chile.
