Buenos Aires, Argentina
Mariano Estrach. He is an artist that was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina in 1965, he links to the sciences of the sea and nature. He studied Oceanography, he is fond of and mountaineering, he is a curious observer of the world around him. He is convinced that every human being is born an artist and develops or hides his potential. He uses them to use the elements at his fingertips to run the limits of his imagination, investigate and and ultimately keep playing like the kids we went and we still are. Art understood as a necessity (and I would almost say, an obligation) in the harsh world in which we live, which forces us to the exercise of seeing and creating beauty. Within this framework, the elements chosen, without being exclusive, have been glass, iron and wood. And these elements link us, not coincidentally, with Viking spirits who used metal for their tools and weapons, wood for their ships and dwellings and glass for their beads. F I S K U R sustains this Nordic spirit from its name, since in Icelandic it means "fish", combining the love for this culture and the sea. Trained in the workshop of master Carlos Herzberg since 2001 (the date is no coincidence, crises awaken the need to create), his career included stained glass with lead, tiffany, glass paste sculptures (pàte de verre), casting, sagging. Later he deepened his knowledge of blacksmithing with the master Joaquín Herzberg to then allow himself to play with all the elements, merging different techniques.
