Argentina, 1984


Gabriel Altamirano studied Fine Arts in Misiones at the Instituto Superior Montoya Posadas, Argentina. His work is inspired by the observation of the contemporary world, taking as references childhood memories, communication, design, fashion, ecology and the impact they have on our perception.

The monochromatic simplicity he often chooses for his figures is enhanced by a great technical skill in the use of the pen as a working tool.

The Argentinean artist demonstrates his sensitivity towards the natural and the sentimental through his compositions where the contact of the naked bodies he presents in his works is shown with the delicacy of the movement of a rhythmic dance.
