Cesar Cornejo/ Book Edition

Cesar Cornejo is an interdisciplinary artist whose work explores the relationship between art, architecture, and society and who is influenced by having lived andworked in four different cultures: Peru, Japan, USA and the UK, having each of them influenced his way of thinking and working.
