Kiernan Cobarrubia is a visual artist living in Berlin, originally from the San Francisco Bay Area in California. His body of work includes 2-Dimensional collages and poster work, screen printing, printed zines, video projects and sculpture, which aesthetically draws from occult iconography, vintage pornography and an interest in analog forms of communication.
Kiernan studied Art History and Film Theory at the University of California, Los Angeles, has participated in various group shows throughout California and Berlin, most notably just having his first solo show at Galerija Klub Kocka in Split, Croatia with queerANarchive.
The work itself centers on the use of archival materials and researched elements while seeped in the context of queer theory and examining the role of Nostalgia, Time and Space within the larger Queer community. His work also expands into ideas around community building, Magical practices and Rituals, queer utopias and the liberation of sexuality and the body.
