Roberto Aizenberg

Argentine artist Roberto Aizenberg (1928-1996) began his career as a student of Juan Batlle Planas. Drawing from surrealism, automatism, and metaphysical art, Aizenberg eventually formulated a reparatory of images that appear repeatedly in his work, including towers, fans, harlequins, and headless human figures. Aizenberg self-identified as a “neosurrealist” or “para-surrealist” and experimented extensively cross-media, producing paintings, drawings, collages, intaglio prints, and sculptures in bronze and marble.
