NOTE: Presentation of the book by Argentine writer Rafael Flores Montenegro, in addition to the exhibition of original documents of Carlos Gardel. Paintings in honor of the Argentine singer-songwriter were exhibited at the presentation.
Through all my works and the collection of objects, I wanted to emphasize C.G life and trajectory. Almost a century has passed and seem that Carlitos endured through time.
I started drawing Gardel at the age of 8 in my art class in elementary school, but... I didn't thought that the "Zorzal Criollo" would change my life so much.
A mysterious photograph with an intense look in the hall of my maternal grandfather's house, was what years later prompted me to capture the work "Barcelona 1932".
During my adolescence I was dedicated to Renaissance art, especially with religious works for the Catholic institution of Cordoba. Whose images were sent to a Vatican Congregation in Rome.
I discovered my admiration for Gardel through my grandmother who passed on his story to me.
I continued to paint his legendary image through the years.
Eventually I began to work on the Cultural project "Volver" which represents a return to our roots. I presented projects in the Legislature of the province of Córdoba, as well as in the Legislature of Buenos Aires (CABA) and in different official and private organizations.
During the exhibitions I met great tango artists with whom I shared the stage, such as Nelly Omar (artistic godmother), Maestro Atilio Stampone and Rodolfo Mederos. I presented in Misiones "Gardel visita la tierra colorada", a collective exhibition together with Antonio Berni, Grela and Squiavone. I met great collectors, among them the well-remembered Bruno Cespi, with whom I had a deep friendship. I also met poets and writers such as Mosquera Montaña, Ben Molar and Oscar del Priore.
My affection and gratitude to all those who made it possible over the years to form what is today…
"The Carlos Gardel exhibition".
