Leonor Rigau has for over 50 years been one of the few women continuously present in the Argentine contemporary art world. Her paintings show the transgression, mutilation and tearing open of the human body and nature.
Through numerous individual and group exhibitions, Leonor Rigau’s oeuvre is renowned mainly because of works that are associated with neo-expressionism, presented in pictorial series, containing statements that deal mostly with themes linked to the individual’s identity and its interaction with the existing environment.
“Light and colour in the work of Leonor Rigau” at the MPBA, Franklin Rawson Museum, reinstalls the modes in which the artist has worked on her creations of concise aesthetic factors. Through the built journey a tale unfolds about the unity of the drifts (derives), whose completion is reached in the legacy of the painters future, an alternative to the organization of the palette that incorporates the contrasts of cesia, in addition to the traditional spectral opposite.
The exhibition, curated by Lucas Carrieri, presents a selection of works ranging from the Sixties to the present days, passing by a common thread: the light, the color and its infinite shades.

If you are in Cologne this week you will may have the chance to see Eron’s Exhibition: “Album” at Binz-Kraemer Gallery. You have time only till the last day of April!
Working with the spray can as a graffiti writer, Eron has perfected in his artistic works on canvas. The sprayed motifs are by far considered almost photographically realistic perfect. Up close, you can see the rough, hazy color of Italian landscapes, beach motifs, portraits, etc.; Eron works will also be supplemented in gestural “graffiti style” with a slogan spray or graphical elements. The typical signature of the artist can be recognized in suggestive atmospheres connected with abstract expressionism.
A Jesus made out of window blinds next to an oil painting facing a graffiti on canvas – in such a colourful and uncompromising way the new artist generation is only presented at STROKE ART FAIR during ART WEEK BERLIN. The mix of historic and contemporary art genres blurs the boundries between design, pop und subculture and evokes an excitement for this “art of the 21st century”.
As an art fair for urban art STROKE URBAN ART FAIR positions itself as an alternative to the long-established Berlin art scene. The aim is to show urban art in all its facets, shapes and colours.

Russian MMOMagazine recently published an article on Eron and his work under the title “Artist, throw your brush away!”. Author Aziza Guseinova describes what an immense pleasure it is to watch Eron spray his paintings; how fast and precise he fills the blank canvas with elements that finally become a whole. The result is, states the article, a painting that evokes the romantic landscapes of Caspar David Friedrich even though Eron is only using an ordinary spray can.
