Sandra Vásquez de la Horra was born in 1967 in Viña del Mar, Chile.

Sandra Vásquez de la Horra graduated from the University of Design in Viña del Mar, Chile in 1994 and completed her post-graduate studies in the Kunsthochschule für Medien in Cologne, Germany, in 2002. That year, she had already exhibited in the Goethe Institut at Santiago de Chile and at the Entropie Galerie in Wroclaw. In her works, she applies wax pastel to create drawings that evoke a dark imaginary world in which she represents subversive subjects, such as religion, sex, folk culture, social realities and death, some of which have been redundant throughout her career. The viewer takes part of these anecdotic narratives full of magic, fantasy, irony, violence, sexuality and emotions.
