Statement

Born in Argentina, he has resided in California for more than thirty years. He has a Psychology and Art degree applied to Advertising and Communication Media. He has been painting since a very early age but is in the last few years that he starting dedicating himself full time to paint.
Hugo’s paintings represent a unique fusion of powerful energy of expressionism, intense personal symbolism. Pictorial, fluid and emotional components are of equal significance in his works.
The main thing for him is the expression of fluid motion, reflection of the movement of internal energy. When asked to describe his work he replied, ''I paint my Insides my guts, my feelings''

Review by Paola Trevisan Curator Trevisan International Art Ferrara Italy:

Hugo’s vibrant, intense, powerful art research together with his creative imaginary; add personal and unique inputs to any art exhibition. His singular abstract language where the interaction of spaces, forms and colors connection, create such rich and emotional results able to go beyond the physical limits of the canvas.
The high level of his paintings are full of vitality and experimentation; multicolored yet harmonious patterns, freedom of thought, purity of expression and above all, free creative energy of art.

Currently showing at International Contemporary Masters
His work “Dynamic” is part of the permanent Collection at The Las Vegas - Southern Nevada Museum of Fine Arts - USA

I was born in Argentina 1959. I started drawing and painting at a very young age.
At the age of 5, I started taking drawing classes, painting and ceramics at the Quintanilla Museum.
I studied colors and shades with the artist Alba Martin and Joaquin Araujo.
After finishing high school between Mendoza and Los Angeles, I study psychology in advertising, I graduated in 1981 with a Psychology applied to advertising and Communication media and art degree.
I traveled to Europe where I spent many months; I took art courses and I participated in solo and group shows in Barcelona Spain.
Finally, I came back to Los Angeles California where I spent part of my childhood and teens years and established myself.
I keep painting and sculpting every day, create art is in me,
These are some of the shows I participated.
