Gustavo spent his childhood in Realico, a small town lost in the Argentine Pampas. Besides the artistic activities experienced in his neighbourhood, an encounter with art would amaze and influence him; during a school trip to Buenos Aires, he attended a retrospective of the surrealist artist Joan Miró.
At 17, he moved to General Pico for his studies. At the time he hesitated between art and veterinarian studies, but quickly his instinct led him to choose an artistic path. He completed classical training for 5 years at the university and acquired a solid foundation in art history and philosophy and experimented with different techniques.
At 21 he moved to Chili and opened a studio in Santiago de Chile. For seven years he expressed his desire to create on his canvases and began to make a living from his work.
Gustavo interweaves his South American origins and his intellectual attraction for Europe to create a unique universe; a harmony between indigenous and colonial art.
His style can be distinguished by the strength of the colours, the crisp edges and the use of collage as the main technique. He paints reduced landscapes, peopled with disproportionate characters or objects. Gustavo is inspired by the myths and legends of native Latin America. His paintings reveal elements of Primitive Art punctuated by an unexpected surrealism. The colourful and imaginary atmosphere of Joan Miró inspires his works.
The rich creative period in Santiago gave him the notoriety and experience necessary to launch in Europe. In 2007 he crossed the Atlantic and decided with his English girlfriend to settle in London, where he continued his artistic adventure and multiplied his exhibitions.
Gustavo wishes to express "an air of childish wonder and discreet humour" and create “a surprising universe, a tale of wonder".
