Born and raised in Argentina, I came to the United States to pursue my passion for art and design. As a child, I spent most of my hours trying to discover myself thought different art forms until I found that art itself was my calling. I grew up oppressed by norms in society and that is why, as a sculptor, Illustrator, designer and photographer I strive to move my viewers into a space where they can be themselves, free to feel what they may about the subject of my art. I make art because It is embedded in me. I don’t know of any other way to express myself than through art. Ever since I picked up my first pencil, art was a defining characteristic in my life. I always admired artists that used their social power to affect people’s lives in a positive way, and I have always wanted to be able to return that to the world.
I tend to make art first on paper with different mediums such as watercolors, pens, markers, pencils, and acrylics. I then take them to the computer to give them a fresher, more interesting and innovative look. I create sculptures from objects that have been used or discarded and repurpose them into new and reimagined forms. I utilize techniques that connect to my childhood and memories from when I was younger, such as scribbling and smudging and different line work that somehow portrays my inner child. I enjoy bright colors and I like to give my work a feeling of happiness or nostalgia. I feel that my art has a special sensibility that viewers can connect to and feel that they are part of a dialogue and not excluded. For me the idea of eternalizing the moments of our lives through art is what it is all about. I think about objects or moments that I would like to remember and I eternalize them with my art. In my photography, I am interested in shooting things that at first sight don't look like what they are. I like my photos to be somewhat abstract and I strive to make the viewer question what they are seeing and experiencing.
I am inspired by subjects that are existential parts of our lives such as identity, gender equality, and desire. I think it is important to talk about these subjects and to use art to convey messages to our society. I strongly believe that it is a responsibility I have as an artist. I want to help solve problems in society and to be a voice for generations to come. Creating art is a way for me to be able to connect with people and share feelings and thoughts. I have the opportunity to impart a smile or a frown or another simple or complex emotion, and that means the world to me— that is the reason why I make art. Read Less
