ABOUT THE ARTIST
Moche Atroche studied fine arts in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
Through feather pen, ink and canvas, he uses the line as a key element in the constitution of the images.
The main topic of his works is the distinction between being and entity (Heidegger), so he invites us to think and interact with him in his studies.
In his research and reflexions, he developed materials that describe the compatibility of human beings and their construction with the representation of a viscera.
His work is a register of these findings and is entitled "Anatomic Studies" and "Studies of the Surrounding World".
The path of medicine and the understanding of the human body, the history of civilizations told through visceral representations, and the approaches of philosophy to questions of being are the fields that have shaped the eyes of the artist.
Moche Atroche studied Visual Arts in the ISACP (Instituto Superior de Arte y Creatividad de Pilar) and perfected his craft in Versailles, France, under the tutelage of master Hubert Bejui.
Currently, the artist is studying for a postgraduate degree in Specialization in Media and Technologies for Pictorial Production, in Universidad Nacional de las Artes (Buenos Aires-Argentina).
He is acknowledged as an Argentinian artist representative before the Kingdom of Belgium and the Great Duchy of Luxembourg in the Argentinian Embassy by the power of minister Juan Beretervide, as well as before the German Federal Republic in the Argentinian Embassy by the power of minister Victorio Taccetti.
During 2012 he exposed his artwork: “Etude de l’anatomie selon le sujet et l’objet (who studies who)” in the Grand Palais de París, France; in the 223rd edition of “Le Salon”, hosted by the Société des Artistes Français, and received praise from the headmaster of the association, Madame Viviane Guybet.
His works have been exposed and can be found in Germany, Belgium, Canada, the United States of America, France, and many more.
In 2013, the Municipality of Pilar was granted recognition as a Pilar artist, and in early 2014 he received the Federal Identity award, as an international figure in the area of Plastic Arts. Already in 2016, under the framework of World Youth Day, he received the recognition of Outstanding Youth, awarded by the Youth Directorate of the Municipality of Pilar.
