A special thank you to Curator Bobby Donovan and his lovely wife Cyndi for their invaluable help and hospitality throughout my stay, and to all the people at the Embassy of Argentina for their support and great effort to make this a great experience for all.


Ignacio Alperin is an international artist based in Buenos Aires, Argentina. He grew up in Australia and has lived in several countries around the globe.
The selection of works in this exhibition were compellingly influenced by his synesthesia (”gift” he shares with Kandinsky).
His art is full of ideas, movement and visual interpretations of musical compositions -from Jazz, Soul, Motown and the American songbook, to Tango and the Classics-.
The end result is a visual idiom that borrows from the inventive and spontaneous methods of jazz musicians. This is so much so that his style has been often described as a visual kind of jazz, or “Visual Jazz”.
We find in his paintings a marked rhythmic musicality and improvisational counterpoints, which are always based on a well thought-out idea.
While his robust use of an extended palette extracts unthought-of shades and gradations that have become a signature and a characteristic of his bold and powerful style.

Ignacio Alperin es un artista internacional basado en Argentina, país que lo vio nacer.
Creció en Australia y ha vivido en varios países alrededor del mundo.
La selección de obras que se presentan en esta exposición estuvo fuertemente influenciada por su sinestesia (“regalo” que comparte con Kandinsky).
Su arte se nutre en gran parte de las ideas, movimientos e interpretaciones visuales que extrae de composiciones musicales -desde el Jazz, Soul, Motown y el cancionero americano, hasta el Tango y la música clásica-.
El resultado final es el de un lenguaje visual que extrae lecciones de los métodos inventivos y espontáneos de los músicos, y particularmente del jazz. Tal es así, que en numerosos artículos, su estilo ha sido descripto como un manera visual de hacer Jazz, o “Visual Jazz”.
