Victor Florido

I was born in Buenos Aires in 1976. I have painted since very young, and began to show at the age of 21. I work ever since with Jacob Karpio Gallery and have been showing my work in Argentina and abroad. I lived two years in Amsterdam during my residency period at the Rijksakademie van beeldende kunsten. Now I live and work in my hometown.

In my recent paintings I deal with representation, memory, and the fact of art-making in itself.  The image of stacking papers, pictures, becomes the only possible representation of different unclassified materials. It is the aspect of chaos, void, order, that I am interested in. 


I also make works in other media, such as photograph, and have done some works for books too such as collage illustrations, and covers. Besides my work as an artist I am interested as well in films and philosophy.
