Biography

Leon Ferrari (Buenos Aires, Argentina, 1920) studied engineering at the University of Buenos Aires and, after graduating in 1947, worked on several construction projects in Córdoba with his father, an Italian architect, painter and photographer who emigrated to Argentina in 1915. Ferrari never had any formal art training, which he considers an advantage. He has had numerous solo exhibitions, including the gallery of Ruth Benzacar (Buenos Aires), The Drawing Center (New York), Museo de Arte Moderno (Buenos Aires), Centro Recoleta (Buenos Aires) and the Museu de Arte Moderna (São Paulo). Between April and June 2009 he was featured in Tangled Alphabets: León Ferrari and Mira Schendel at the Museum of Modern Art in New York.
