Erick Beltrán was born in Mexico and works and lives in Amsterdam where he studied at the Rijksakademie. The artist has a notable fascination with language - with the graphic applications of language, and also with the economic and political motives that drive the producers and distributors of printed matter. In his work, he explores various communication structures and mechanisms in contemporary society and has distinguished himself for using unorthodox formats such as the multiple, the 'piece-book' and experiments that try to link public art with graphic languages. To Erick Beltrán the archive, the museum and the library are tools and natural means in his investigation process. He exhibited in the 28th Biennial de São Paulo, Malmo Konsthall, Malmo, Sweden (2007), Galera OMR, Mexico City (2005), S.M.A.K. (Stedelijk Museum voor Actuele Kunst), Ghent (2005), Stedelijk Museum Bureau and W139 in Amsterdam (2004-2005). He exhibited in de Appel arts centre in Haunted by detail in 2003.
