The artist Gonzalo Elvira (Patagonia, Argentina, 1971) has been awarded the Ciutat de Palma Antoni Gelabert Prize for Visual Arts 2020 for his installation Dreams. Previous recipients of this award include artists such as Núria Güell or Carles Congost. At RocioSantaCruz, we celebrate with emotion the recognition of Elvira, whose vision and sensitivity are a benchmark in the field of artistic creation.
Gonzalo Elvira (Patagonia, Argentina, 1971) studied at the Antonio Berni School of Visual Arts in Argentina and began his exhibition career in 1993. He currently lives and works in Barcelona since 2000, and combines his artistic side with an intense educational and pedagogical work concentrated in the Obra Door studio, which he manages and directs in the Gracia neighborhood. In 2019, he received the prestigious Beca de Artes Plásticas by Botín Foundation, where he is preparing an exhibition for 2022.
Elvira has exhibited his work in numerous art centers and galleries both in Europe and America. In recent years, his works have been acquired by various public and private collections in various countries. He presented the exhibition Idilio (2019-2020) at RocioSantaCruz gallery, a germinal work that gives rise and continuity to his later projects, including the installation ‘Sueños’. Elvira received the GAC Artist Award for Best Gallery Show.
