Horacio Cardozo

Horacio Cardozo was born in Argentina where he studied Architecture and Design at Buenos Aires University and Philosophy at Del Salvador University. His drawing skills and his admiration for fine arts, especially those of the Renaissance period, led him to explore a career in painting since 1987. His oil paintings display a touch of surrealism and express mythical ideas and concepts as well as philosophical themes. His eagerness to understand the inherent relationship between human nature, the universal order and the underlying reality leads him to create images that attempt to explain that which defies reason. His nude and semi-nude series set in a mystic aura are tinted with a subtle beauty. He has participated in many group exhibitions such as the 3rd Young Art Biennale, 1993; the National Senate, Buenos Aires, 1997 and 2000; and in MAC 21, Marbella, Spain, 2000; among others. Since 2002 Horacio has been living in Auckland and Sydney where he works as a Graphic Artist and continues to develop his artistic career.
