We’re closing out this last week of June with a new Artteca Artist Spotlight! This month we’re shining a light on Artist Mauro Giaconi.
Giaconi was born in Buene Aires, Argentina and currently lives in Mexico City. He attended the “Escuela Nacional de Bellas Artes Prilidiano Pueyrredón: School of Art” in 2011 and since then, his work has developed into various art forms such as sculptures, drawings and installations. He was awarded at the Philips Art Expression for Young Talents Contest and was presented the Distinction and Merit Award at the Salón Nacional de Dibujo. Giaconi was also selected for the first and second ArteBA-Petrobras Prize and was a 2010 recipient of the Centro de Investigaciones Artísticas (CIA) scholarship.
Mauro Giacconi’s artistic unique approach redefines the act of drawing using personal reflection and references. His work also displays awareness of a life lived under oppression and dictatorship.
Thus far in his career, Giaconi’s work has been exhibited internationally in Mexico, France, Argentina and Miami. Some of those shows and fairs include:
