Realities and improbable events
I’m a self-taught digital artist, born in Argentina. I didn’t have the opportunity to attend a university, I continue learning on my own to this day. I discovered a passion for visual arts and illustration when I was a child. When I was 17 years old, I start to work as a graphic artist in a local newspaper in Las Flores, my hometown. In the late 80’s I moved from my little town to Buenos Aires and worked as a graphic designer for a print house for five years. In the 90s, I turned to digital and worked as graphic designer and illustrator for several projects in the music industry for companies like MCA, Universal, RoadRunner, Polygram, BMG, Fonovisa, Word Entertainment and Canzion. In 2002, I began to produce my own personal artwork. Now I live and have my own studio in Hollywood, FL.
Sometimes ideas come to me in a flash, I make an outline in my sketchbook then go the computer and in a few hours I can define the piece. But sometimes it is more difficult and in the middle of the process, I drastically change the focus and I finally finish the composition in another way after a month. Sometimes I only start with a few elements and no ideas, and after brainstorming the piece is born. I try to tell a story in each piece. The digital medium is perfect for putting my ideas together and making them a reality. Also I feel very comfortable with collage and mixed media. I like to blend my drawing, photos, and found objects. Basically, I blend the elements in several layers; I draw, add color and them add more layers of scratch and corroded textures.
The most important for me is the act of creating a good concept and bringing it to reality. The birth of a good idea is a celebration of art, the choice of a medium is only a complement. I try to create small “never seen before” scenarios of improbable events, which require the viewer to interpret the message for himself. And try to establish questions for the viewer and demand viewer participation. My pieces are dreamlike figurations about the human condition, technologic dependence, punishment to nature, and loss of basic fundamental
