Guillermo Kuitca |1961 , Born in Buenos Aires, Argentina

Guillermo Kuitca started painting in childhood, and received the drawing prize from the Sociedad Hebraica Argentina in 1978. His early work was rather figurative and descriptive, but from the 1980s he began to develop a unique abstract style, in reaction to the dictatorial regime in Argentina at the time. His canvases are built up, little by little, with geographical charts and visually powerful architectural subjects, in vibrant colours, that express imaginary, open spaces.

His style is both geographical and narrative. Guillermo Kuitca has had work exhibited in major museums such as the Tate Gallery in London and MoMa in New York; he has also participated in Documenta and the Venice Biennale.
