Born in La Plata, Argentina in 1966, Andrés Compagnucci is known as the artist who introduced hyperrealism in Argentina in the 1990s. He earned his degree as a Graphic Designer at Universidad Nacional de La Plata in 1992, and two years later, he was awarded a scholarship by Fundación ROA to work together with the contemporary artist Guillermo Kuitca. He studied painting and drawing with Carlos Pacheco, and decorative art with Armando Miotti, experiences that help him achieve remarkable skills.
His oil work displays a flawless technique and a great attention to detail. So much so, that it has been displayed in distinguished international art fairs: BASEL-Miami (2003, 2004), and ARCO-Madrid (1998, 2002, 2003, 2004 and 2005). He has also participated in group exhibitions all around the world like Vienna, Paris, London, New York, Tokyo, Miami and Marbella.
