Born in Argentina in 1976, Daniela Mastandrea lives and works in Puerto Madryn, Chubut.
Her work draws from literature, words, writing, poetry and books. It talks about being – about inhabiting a world codified by the man. She then decodes it and tries new codes, new meanings.
“Looking for a place to anchor, I found the sand. The sand is volatile, with no destination other than the one imposed by the wind. So fertile in its aridity. I wanted to settle without being rooted. I wanted to build on that ephemeral and malleable ground, a structure that can contain us on the transience of being, a city standing in time “a City of sand.”
Educated in Buenos Aires, Daniela Mastandrea studied Fine Arts at the National University of La Plata (U.N.L.P). After graduating with distinction in 2003, Daniela took postgraduate courses in “Engraving and Printed Art – Conceptual and pedagogical implications” and “Aesthetics and Communication” (National University of La Plata) and was awarded a scholarship from the Bunge-Born Foundation. She also attended curatorial studies at the Philadelphia Institute and cultural management studies at Centro Cultural Borges, both in Buenos Aires.
After her studies, she moved back to Puerto Madryn, where she was Museum Director at The Museum of Modern Art in Puerto Madryn (2005-2007), and also the editor of Visual Poetry Í? magazine? in Patagonia since 2006.
She leads workshops on experimental graphics “Art + Lab” and art history “small artist along with masters” both for children, and has been awarded with the recognition “Tela Rayon” for her artistic work in 2006, 2007 and 2009.
Sponsored by the Government of Chubut, Daniela Mastandrea writes on Patagonian art. Her latest papers include “Patagonia hidden abstraction, rediscover the South” and “Contemporary Art in Patagonia”. Artist portfolio
