I was born in Buenos Aires and I’m a National School of Fine Arts Prilidiano Pueyrredón graduate, I have a Visual Arts degree from the National Institute of Fine Arts (IUNA), and I’m an accountant from Buenos Aires’ University (UBA) as well. It must be that the reason for which I classify, collect, and add my art pieces, It could be either a professional defect or maybe just vice.
In the year 2008 I participated in the Exchange Grant directed by Patricia Hakim and Valeria González. Since 2005, I have been attending Juan Doffo’s art workshop. I co-directed the art group “Macadamia” with Marta Ares and with this group we organized fairs, actions and exhibitions in 2002 and 2003.
Anselmo Piccoli tought me the grounds of color and composition that guided me in painting techniques. My starting point was next to Luís Barragán. I realized creativity seminaries by Emilio Renart.
After several years of being absent from the art scene, I became absolutely involved with video, and in it, I found my true expression way.
Now a day I do video, objects, artist’s books and photography.

Vision of art
“Variations on a same topic” It’s a hand written artist book, with commercial calligraphic hand writing. Following the learning, order and tidiness spirit I respected during my teenager years.
Phrases that men used, use and will use to justify themselves for not returning a women phone call: “I had no signal”, “I had to work extra hours”. The video takes 7 model men writing the phrases on a blackboard, and in the end, I, as a performer, develop an action ignoring that situation. In another book “Not everything is color pink” (Not everything is that easy), I respect the same concepts as in the “Variations…” book, but in this, the phrases have to do with the one told in a relationship, such as “We need to talk”, “I need some time”.
Videos have a direct effect on the one seeing it, situation I take advantage of, asking them to send their own phrases through text messages. This are projected in real time in a screen. In that way, I add the text messages written language to calligraphy.
