Art Brokerage: Carlos Ferreyra Argentine Artist: B. 1937. Carlos Ferreyra has dedicated his life to art. Self-taught, he has captured the essence of everyday events and fills them with gentle humor. Ferreyra started drawing since he was a small child. Back in school, at the age of 9 years old, his teachers would ask him to draw illustrations of folk tales from books, using colored chalk on the blackboard in the drama room. At the age of 15 Ferreyra became part of the cast of independent theater in Argentina, where he became an actor, as well as a director. But it was years later, when he focused only on his painting. His father was a carpenter, and it was from him, Ferreyra assures, that he inherited the noble occupation of working with his hands. Carlos Ferreyra has been creating art all of his life. After thirty years of expressing himself in ways that ranged from drawings to oil and from portraiture to abstract, Carlos Ferreyra not only developed a unique painting technique, but also created a body of work that interprets the moods and events of an entire culture. His newest line of work is dedicated to The important moments of the people without importance. With his works of art, Ferreyra honors everyday life, the dignity of the common job and the humility of simple things. Here, he opens a window for us to see his memories, to glance at a moment frozen in time, which in many ways becomes a memory of our own past that we might have taken for granted. To know Ferreyra's art is to know him, his family, friends, neighbors, even that old man who worked at the bakery around the corner. People understand immediately what it is that I want to show, there are no explanations needed. My paintings bring you closer, they integrate those who are watching, feel as if they are inside.'
