About the artist
Jacqueline Unanue is a Chilean-American artist of Spanish ancestry living and working in art in Philadelphia since 2000.
She studied design at the Universidad de Chile, Valparaíso, and received formal training in drawing, painting, art history and textile art. While a student, she became interested in the rock art found in Chile where she met world-renowned archaeologist, Hans Niemeyer, who soon became her mentor. She traveled extensively through Chile’s Atacama Desert doing on-site rock art research in the solitary valleys, mountains and cliff areas where original ancient rock paintings and carvings exist. In Spain, she studied the pre-historic paintings of the Altamira caves in the Basque Country, the home of her paternal ancestors.
Jacqueline Unanue’s work has been shown in both solo and group exhibitions around the world, specifically Spain, Finland, Ecuador, Argentina, and the United States in Washington D.C., Philadelphia, Chicago, and New York. Her work resides in many private and public collections in the Americas and Europe.
In 2015, she received the Latin American Women in Art and Cultural Tribute recognition in New York.
