Josefina Robirosa (b Buenos Aires, 26 May 1932) is one of the Argentina’s most famous painters and muralists. Her stunning work includes murals in different city buildings including Galerias Pacifico and in the Buenos Aires and Paris subways. Her life was more traditional, as she came from an aristocratic family, married young, and her painting began in her garage with her babies crawling around her. Her artwork has been exhibited both locally at the Museo de Bellas Artes and Museo de Arte Moderno and internationally in New York and Switzerland.
“Experience produced works where different
directions of energy get together,
reject, complete or change until they turn into
spirals or moebius suggested
in an absolute holographical whole”
“I measured myself in abstraction,
to find an image more personal,
signed by the predominance of reason”
«Imaginaba celebrar la vida con un símbolo perfecto: el vuelo de los pájaros.Pero uno de ellos, que vive con las alas cortadas, reclamó poder encarnar la impotencia frente a la impunidad que acompaña nuestros días.Los testigos de su actitud apoyamos su rotundo derecho a optar entre la voz o el silencio.»
