Gustavo Fares

Fares’ visual interests include the exploration of imagery linked to Latin American marginal representations of the Sacred, of the limits and possibilities of painting as a medium, and of topological spaces as they relate to the philosophy of language and to Oriental symmetries. In his works, Fares uses traditional materials, such as oil and acrylic on canvas or paper. He is known to work in digital media as well.

He has exhibited his work in the United States, Argentina, Spain, France, and Mexico.

Fares holds a Professor Degree in Painting and Drawing from the “Escuela Nacional de Bellas Artes Prilidiano Pueyrredon” in Buenos Aires, Argentina. He undertook post-graduate studies at the “Escuela Superior de Bellas Artes Ernesto de la Carcova” in the same city. After settling in the United States, Fares completed a Masters in Painting and Lithography at West Virginia University, and Ph. D. Certificate in Cultural Studies at the University of Pittsburgh. There he received grants from the Tinker and Andrew W. Mellon foundations.
