Modern Caravaggio - Matias Kritz
Inspired by the works of revolutionary at his times like Caravaggio and the technique of spiral works, talented and absolutely unique Argentinian artist, Matias Kritz, makes a difference in electric Buenos Aires.
Presented in the variety of galleries across the globe — in London, Naples and Caserta in Italy, as well as at home in Buenos Aires, Mr. Kritz is rapidly growing his international presence.
Krtiz is invited by MOMA (Museum of Modern Art in Manhattan) and MET (Metropolitan Museum of Art) to take workshops and seminars.
International critics, such as well-known contemporary artist Angelo Musco says — “Lifting off layers of skin, Matias Kritz's Spiral Works explore the emotions of his subject as well as the audience, evoking a dialogue about anxiety, longing, and worship. The body is meticulously opened to view as if a glass window has been placed to give access deep within while maintaining the integrity of the human form."
Recently presenting two exhibitions in Passeo Duhau at Palacio Duhau, Alvear in Buenos Aires and upcoming Casa Foa exhibition, where,the best artists of Argentina receive an exceptional chance to present their pieces, Kritz has truly made his presence known around the world.
