Argentinian, b. 1977
Lives and works in Buenos Aires, Argentina
Through paintings and sculpture, Argentinian artist Julian Prebisch investigates the origin of forms and their functions. The elegant, curvilinear forms that populate his enigmatic works hint at recognizable real-world referents—a fountain, a window, a musical instrument— and recall elements of Art Deco and Bauhaus design. He draws upon a wide range of visual references, including literature, cinema, textile design, and the history art, as well as his background in architecture and graphic design, and a childhood surrounded by artistic production.
Prebish has exhibited work in Argentina; San Francisco, CA; and Miami, FL. In addition to solo exhibitions at Miau Miau Gallery, Recoleta Cultural Center, and the General San Martin Cultural Center, (all Buenos Aires, Argentina), his works have been included in group shows at the Konex Cultural Center, Buenos Aires, Argentina; Timoteo Navarro Museum, Tucumán, Argentina; and Palais de Glace, Buenos Aires, Argentina.
