About the Artist
Ignacio Alperin was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina, grew up in Australia and lived in several countries around the globe until his return to his country of origin more than a decade ago. At a very young age and with the help of his mother, a talented artist herself, and his father, an engineer internationally renowned for his creativity and innovation, he took his first steps in the world of art. Surrounded by drawing tables, technical pens and architectural influences he began to create his own path. His early influences were very eclectic and mature for his age. They included great masters like Rembrandt, Monet, Van Gogh and Gauguin, as well as modern masters like Kandinsky, Pollock, Picasso, de Kooning and Rauschenberg. Drawing, painting, and a great deal of reading took an important place in his life. During his early 20s he develops a love affair with jazz, becoming an avid follower of the local Australian jazz scene and as a result, his painting begins to show signs of this inspiration. Complex rhythms, intertwining melodies, and a great deal of improvisational skills are developed in his art. ©2015/2016 Ignacio Alperín Bruvera Page | 2 That slow and jazzy pace also helped him mature his own approaches and techniques while freeing himself from classical ties, finding stimulus in unusual places and developing a unique and sensitive voice. Added to that, his artistically applied synesthesia condition which he shares with Kandinsky-, adds to his work an unusual share of musicality and innovation.
