Cesar Cornejo's work explores the relationship between art, architecture and society. He is influenced by having lived and worked in four different cultures: Peru, Japan, England and USA, having each of them influenced the way he thinks about art and how he makes it.

He produces multilayered pieces that while addressing issues that may refer to his native Peru, are also open to broader interpretations.

He works in several medias including; installation, sculpture, painting, drawing,  photography and performance. He is also interested in creating alternative institutional models that can promote social change. His ongoing project Puno Museum of Contemporary Art (Puno MoCA), does this through proposing an alternative model of museum which places community at its center.
