Alejandro Aróstegui

Alejandro Aróstegui paints haunting, monochrome vistas, lake shores and distant volcanoes. In the foreground, a glimpse of his concern for the environment. Bits of scrap metal, an old drain. He is particularly fond of smashed cans. With them, he shows us reflected images of solemn figures, and lost cities. Aróstegui was born in Bluefields, Nicaragua. In 1954, he began studies in the U.S. at Tulane and then at the Ringling School of Art. From 1960 to 1962 he went to the Academy of Fine Arts in Paris. In 1963, he returned to Nicaragua. That year, he had his first show. He also co-founded Praxis, an influential group of young artists and intellectuals. He called it “a voice of painting, conscious of Nicaraguan reality.” Aróstegui served as director of the schools of fine arts in Managua and León. A central figure in 20th century Nicaraguan painting, he is also well known internationally.
