Horacio Carrena

Horacio Carrena was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina in 1955. He graduated from the University of Visual Arts in Buenos Aires in 1978 and started his professional career in 1979. The theme of Carrena’s work represents a new vision of the contemporary media inspired by the rich signage of the ancient peoples of South America.  He works on series, where the image varies according to the material used. The universe and nature are the other evident elements in Carrena’s art in which he is immersed and researched through new media: from photocopies, electrographic engraving, photography, and digital art.

Currently, he is dabbling in video art, giving movement to his previous works. Some of his artworks, including paintings, engravings, and drawings, exist in private collections in the US, Spain, Poland, the Caribbean, Mexico, Peru, Switzerland, Germany, and Argentina. One of his paintings was donated and accepted to be part of the permanent collection of the National Museum of Fine Arts in Buenos Aires. Today, Horacio Carrena’s works appear in very important Musem such as the Museum of Contemporary Art of Huila, Colombia, Museum of Modern Art in Durango, Mexico, Beato Angélico Museum in La Plata, Argentina, Museum of Electrography and Copy Art in Cuenca, Spain, National Museum of Engraving, Buenos Aires, Argentina, in the Ozanam Foundation Collection, Zaragoza, Spain and the Shoe Museum, Alicante.
