Each issue of the Inti journal we digitize features artwork by well-known artists. One of the best known is Mario Toral.

Mario Toral Muñoz is a Chilean-born painter and photographer, who at 16 relocated to Argentina before studying as a fine art student in Uruguay and France. He settled in New York from 1973-92, where he established himself professionally by regularly participating in exhibitions. One of his most famous works, a mural entitled Visual Memory of a Nation, is located in the Santiago Metro station at the Universidad de Chile. The massive piece took him 3 years to complete, from 1996-99.
