Buenos Aires, Argentina, 1951
The drawings of graphic ancestry and free development of the master Eduardo Stupía come from his fertile imagination. As an artist who draws without any ambition to represent the outside world, his works range in the various grey shades of graphite. Between line and stain, landscape and writing, his work often becomes poetic, linguistic and symbolic.
Stupía is a teacher, curator and theorist of contemporary drawing. He studied at the Escuela Nacional de Bellas Artes Manuel Belgrano in Buenos Aires and has exhibited internationally since 1973. He has participated in the Sao Paolo Biennial, Brazil; the Taipéi Drawing Biennial, Taiwan; the Indian Triennial; and the Inter-American Art Biennial of Mexico. His work was part of the exhibition “New Perspectives in Latin American Art 1930-2006”, MoMA, Museum of Modern Art, New York.
