Leopoldo Torres Agüero

Born in Buenos Aires in 1924 and died in Paris in 1995, during to function how Ambassador in UNESCO. Is possible to divide his work of art in three phases:

First: figuration, after words, the liric abstraction and in the end sensitive geometric. In that last; the color beauty and the sensitive line take particular relevance.

Torres Agüero lived in Japan between 1959 and 1961, he who make orientation to abstraction. His Art work from “Geometric” phase is a continuous process of incentive and find of Satori; that  sudden illumination that guide to truth. (Zen )
