After studying music and architecture, Argentine artist Oscar Agustin Alejandro Schulz Solari (1887-1963) moved to Europe in 1912 and remained there until 1924. During this period abroad he began painting; studied the occult and Asian religions; and developed a style that combined his philosophical and historial meditations with a flat, geometricizesd, modernist style. Upon his return to Buenos Aires, Solar joined the group Martín Fierro. He went on depict fantastic landscapes and architecture that reflected his deep interests in mysticism, theosophy and astrology. Solar was also an inventor of two new languages: neocriollo and panlengua.
