Overview of my journey as an artist

 

I was born in Buenos Aires in 1981.

 

Seeing my interest in drawing and painting, my parents got me involved in my first art studies at an Academy near our home, between the ages of 7 and 12. This process nurtured my love for art and inspired a journey that is now a fundamental part of my life.

Then, in my early twenties I studied for Bachelor in Visual Arts at the National University of Arts Institute (IUNA). I got the opportunity to study with masters like Carlos Scannapieco, Elsa Soibelman and Carlos Fels, among others.

 

Currently I show my work in solo and group exhibitions and share it daily via the web.

In addition to my studio practice, I've been recently involved in street art, painting murals in cultural centers, local businesses and institutions.

 

The large walls and canvases allow me a greater freedom of expression, the use of the whole body, the experience of speed and adrenalin.

The walls is where my passion flourishes and easel paintings is where the concepts and ideas that most interest me become alive.

 

I currently seek to represent the meditative journey inside, the different dimensions that interact, energy vortices, fractals, similarity between micro and macro, death and rebirth, regeneration, mandalas, sacred geometry, new science.

For this, I use in some works a varied and intense chromatic palette, looking for a high visual impact on the spectator that will lead to inspiration and motivation for life. Other times I prefer the mutation and mysterious effect that cause the iridescent, metallic and fluorescent colors.

I made some works on silk embroidered with threads of iridescent effect.

I also developed a long series of works called “Luminous un-paints”  which consist in fabrics previously dyed and then faded with bleach. These works can be illuminated from behind, giving a very interesting effect.

 

I'm in constant development of interior work, including deep meditations, spiritual retreats, trips, shamanic experiences, vision search and diverse experiences of self-knowledge and healing in my life. The results of this inner work, inspire and motivate my work.

 

While I paint I try to be in an intense tune with a purpose behind the work. A purpose can be, for example, that this painting will inspire others to find their own path to the reconnection with their own internal being.

 

 

"As above so below, as below so above"

"Nothing rests, everything moves, everything vibrates"

“Extremes meet; all paradoxes may be reconciled "

 

extract from the "The Kybalion"

My works are in different parts of the world. Original paintings have already been purchased by individuals and institutions from Argentina, Uruguay, Brazil, Colombia, Guatemala, Venezuela, Mexico, United States, Canada, Germany and India. The trip just begins ...
