Iván Sikic is a conceptual artist who explores social and political structures and conflicts with the use of objects, installation, public activations, video, photography and durational performance.
While his works tend to explore delicate subjects, rather than exposing the dark elements of the issues he touches, Sikic tends to focus on the beauty that is present within these conflicts, and uses these attributes to highlight the importance of a continuing dialogue.
His work has been written about by media around the world, including Artishock (Chile), El Comercio (Peru), The Creators Project (USA), Artnet News, Art Report (NY), El Cultural (Diario El Mundo, Spain) VICE Colombia (Colombia) MAKMA (Spain), High on Art, Heavy on Antics Magazine, BOOOOOOM!

Sikic has been a part of numerous residencies in various countries across the world, and his pieces have been shown in solo and group shows in Europe, Latin America, the United States and Australia. More recently, he was a part of the 2nd Gran Bienal Tropical (Loiza, Puerto Rico, 2016), curated by Marina Reyes Franco, Radames "Juni" Figueroa, Stefan Benchoam & Pablo León de la Barra. His works form part of private collections in Australia, Europe, the United States and Latin America.
