Beto De Volder

Beto De Volder (b. 1962, Buenos Aires) studied at the Escuela Nacional de Bellas Artes Manuel Belgrano from 1986 to 1989, earning a degree in arts education and was the recipient of the Fundación Antorchas scholarship for the work/study program at the Taller de Barracas, Buenos Aires at 1994-96. In 1991, he held his first solo exhibition of paintings at the influential Rojas Gallery, which was then the epicenter of the contemporary art scene in Buenos Aires. His most recent oeuvre took a radical turn from his more figural work in the 1990s. Conflated with an ascetic yet bold use of color (often committing to one single hue), his forms unfold into three-dimensional space through single or intertwining loops, or by overlapping minimal shapes in between space of randomization and restraint.

Over more than three decades, De Volder has had over fifteen solo shows and participated in multiple group exhibitions in the United States, France, Argentina, Uruguay and Peru, including exhibitions at the Blanton Museum,in Texas Bellas Artes Museum in San Juan,Museo Castagnino in Rosario (Argentina), and Le 19 CRAC in Montbéliard (France). His artwork is part of various international cultural institutions and private collections, as well as in the public collections of the Museum of Latin American Art of Buenos Aires (MALBA), Museum of Contemporary Art of Buenos Aires (MACBA), and the Museum Castagnino of Rosario, Santa Fe, Argentina. A major monograph of his work was published by Adriana Hidalgo Editora in 2011.
