Alfonsina Nespolo's Profile

About

I'm a graphic artist living and working in Buenos Aires.
I have a degree in Fine Arts and taught engraving at the University and in my workshop.
My work is inspired in scrawls, in trying to write something but without completing the linguistic process. This leaves the pure graphic gesture. Which is accompanied by color, levels, lines, textures forms different compositions.

All the engravings on this site are originals and hand pulled editions.

Thanks for your interest!
