Ignacio Iturria is a Uruguayan artist who was born in Montevideo in 1949. His work often features nautical scenes and muddy tones similar to the La Plata River that runs along the coast of Montevideo. We have custom framed and stretched several of Ignacio Iturria's works including the one below. After building a custom heavy duty stretcher, we carefully stretched the canvas and secured it.
Ignacio Iturria uses a distinctly recognizable color palette that mimics and mirrors the colors seen often in Montevideo. Everyday household scenes and mementos are a mainstay as well as family portraits in somber tones. Iturria is one of the most prominent contemporary Uruguayan artists. He took home a special prize in the 1995 Venice Bienal for Uruguay and has remained at the forefront of important art conversations since. His use of accessible subjects and familiar topics make his art a favorite among a wide variety of viewers. He is represented by the Lyle O. Reitzel Gallery which has locations in the Dominican Republic and on New York's Lower East Side.
