Carlos Arnaiz

Carlos Arnaiz (Buenos Aires, Argentina, 1948) is one of the most prominent Argentinian visual artists of his generation.

He works both on canvas and paper, making free use of color and form in entangled, convoluted patterns of baroque exuberance; indistinctly using oil, ink, and watercolor with a sure dominion of each technique. He draughts inspiration from nature: flowers, seashells, leaves, stones and trees. He lived in Europe from 1978 until 1996, first In Germany and later in Spain. His work is well represented in museums and public collections in South America and Europe and has shown at several international art fairs.

He has been honored with several awards in the visual arts, both in Latin America and Europe, including the First Prize at the Salón Nacional de Artes Visuales Argentino, the highest artistic award in the Country. 

He currently lives and works in Buenos Aires.
