Arturo Mallmann at Mirada Fine Art

We have a number of spectacular pieces by Argentinian-born artist Arturo Mallmann.  To be perfectly honest, we don't post that much about Arturo's work here or on our Facebook page, and the reason is simply because his work is really diminished when you see it on a computer.

Born in 1953 in Montevideo, Uruguay, Arturo spent most of his childhood and early adulthood in Buenos Aires, Argentina. His unparalleled mixed-media creations draw from his life experiences in Latin America. Utilizing a process consisting of alternating layers of varnish and sanding, Mallmann is able to create the illusion of depth from which his figures emerge. This primary imagery found in Mallmann’s work evokes the ultimate existential expression of the human condition. Mr. Mallmann moved to the United States in 1988 and currently lives in Los Angeles, CA.

We hope you'll come in and see Arturo's work in person...it will truly astound you.  The depth of his work is truly unparalleled. 

Mark your calendars as well.  Arturo is part of a two-person exhibition later this summer with Russian-born artist, Svetlana Shalygina.  Their exhibition is titled '8354 Miles' and runs from September 3 - 25th.  The artist reception will be on Friday night, September 2nd from 6-9 pm.
