Born and raised in Argentina, Raúl Blisniuk started his relationship with visual art as a collector. As well as art, Blisniuk also collects memorabilia, obtaining the Guinness Record in 1998 for The Beatles’ biggest collector in South America. Being a recognised figure in the art world in Argentina, having made several exhibitions and auctions in prestigious museums and exhibitions centers in Argentina such as Palais de Glace and La Rural, he started his journey as a visual artist himself.
Combining his love for The Beatles, pop art and bright colors, Blisniuk puts himself no limits, creating art from painting to sculptures; from abstract to figurative painting. He participated in several exhibitions, both individually and collectively in Miami, Dubai, Buenos Aires and more.
My creative work includes painting, sculptures, drawing, printmaking, and installations. I believe that insight in art is supported by a cross-disciplinary practice and I find that my work in one discipline influences my work in another.
I put no limits myself, taking every medium as an opportunity to express different ideas. I mainly work with highly saturated primary and secondary colors, transferring my excitement for life into them, creating dynamic and energetic artworks. I am inspired by pop art and street art, combining them with celebrities figures such as The Beatles, Frida Kahlo, Michael Jackson, among others.
I intend the audience to feel this energy and feel joy when observing my art mixing it with the affinity they feel for these artists. I started my relationship with art as a collector. Since I was 13 years old I started to collect The Beatles’ memorabilia, obtaining the Guinness Record in 1998 for The Beatles’ biggest collector in South America. The memorabilia collecting opened the door to visual art, which I began to collect as well 30 years ago. Five years later, in 1995, I started to paint, connecting these passions, The Beales and art, and portraying them into the canvas. These 25 years, I developed my career in Argentina, and now I want to spread it into the world.
