Shop Available Works Artist’s CV

Cornejo’s ability to masterfully combine acrylic and oil to fuse hyperrealism with a highly stylized, “super flat” style is highly utilized in his playfully forward use of high profile pop iconography. The artist’s keen sense of humor takes aim at celebrity and video gaming culture presenting questions with wit instead of direct criticism.

Living and working in El Salvador, Cornejo has exhibited individually and collectively in Nicaragua, Panama, El Salvador, Mexico, Canada, and Germany. Cornejo’s career has skyrocketed in recent years, with a scholarship to Berlin (2009-10), top awards from the Salvadorian Museum of Art (MARTE) in 2008, as well as the National Art Awards in 2003 and 2001 (El Salvador).
