Biography

I am a graphic artist and illustrator home based in Buenos Aires, Argentina. I have been a graphic design professor at Buenos Aires University for 8 years. As an artist, I have produced several solo shows at Buenos Aires (Argentina), Rosario (Argentina), San Francisco (CA, USA) and Santiago de Chile (Chile). In addition I have participated of several combined shows, at Portland (Oregon, USA), Buenos Aires (Argentina), Tandil (Argentina) and Asunción (Paraguay). I have been invited to the last 3 editions of Puma Urban Art in Buenos Aires.

I've worked for a wide range of commercial and commissioned works for brands developing graphic universes and illustrations.

Vintage graphic advertising inspires my work. I love the look of low-fi printing. It's errors and limitations give my work a distinctive characteristic. Using screen-printing, risograph and painting, I have developed a style based on low quality printing methods of the early graphic advertising. I also have extended work on lettering and typography.

In the search of inspiration of a simpler life I explore craftsmanship lifestyles, such as fishermen, axmen, butchers, carpenters, etc. In addition I also enjoy exploring popular street graphic.

I have worked for brands such as Jack Daniel's, Absolut Vodka, Nike, Puma, Sol Beer, Cinzano, Vans, Oreo, Good Year, Penguin, California Customs, Pilgrim London, BlackFin, Gravedad Zero.
