I’m an architect/painter from Argentina. Since graduating in 2001 with a bachelor’s degree in Architecture from a University in Buenos Aires, I have spent much of my time designing different architectural projects all over the world.
Drawing and sketching have always been a part of my life, especially during my years of training and working as an architect; however, more recently, painting has become a part of my life. In the beginning, it was a means of self-discovery and expression and now, I am lost without it.
I am smitten, and at the same time intrigued, by the underlying, yet unspoken and sublime conversation, that a painting can evoke within one’s unconsciousness. The range and possibility between the brush stroke; whether it be simple or complex, coupled with its overall effect, both inspires and challenges me at the same time. I am never comfortable or complacent with my style or with my ability, and this serves as both my own personal challenge and muse.
Nonetheless, I have discovered an artistic niche within me that loves the way my brush, although in theory, not much different than my pencil, allows me to illustrate my creative side with a different emphasis.
