Born in La Plata, Argentina, in 1971. I live and work in between Madrid and Buenos Aires.
“A kid could have done that” is perhaps the single, biggest compliment I pursue with my work. I’ve spent most of my life trying to unlearn art school, to forget art history and to dismantle the notion of the self (haven’t been successful in this last part, as you can see picture of myself up there), looking to regain the true sense of freedom and joy I had making art as a young boy.
After finishing art school, I started working in advertising and this led me into filmmaking. Looking back now, everything I do, from sculpture, print or film, seems to have the same roots in childhood memories and a sense of fascination. Over time, my work has evolved from serious and pretentious, to light hearted and pretentious. Working on it.
