In the Studio With Artist Jeronimo Zancaner

Part of my motivation to venture this far south of the equator was not only to experience everything that Buenos Aires had to offer, but also to hopefully resurrect my previous life as a photo-realist portrait painter. I haven’t painted in over six years (see paintings from college here), and am just now re-scratching the surface. Thanks to some good friends here in town, before arriving I was introduced to local artist Jeronimo Zancaner. Upon first meeting (via facbook) the two of us hit it off right away, and Jero offered to help me find my way back to the canvas by sharing his studio with me, and that’s where our adventure began.

Since then I have spent some (but not nearly enough) hours in our studio located in Buenos Aires on the border of Belgrano and Las Cañitas.  In that time I’ve had the opportunity to work alongside Jero, and get aquatinted with his work and oddly fascinating way of seeing the world. First of all during the day Jero works as a color developer in a nail polish factory owned by his family. Not only is this an awesome job for a painter, but provides me with a constant supply of ANY NAIL POLISH THAT I WANT. More importantly when looking at his paintings Jeronimo’s keen eye for color is apparent. I often watch him as he creates tiny worlds in his sketch book with small, black squiggly line drawings that are somehow later transformed into vibrant paintings. From red glowing elephants to fanciful creatures with human heads, Jero’s work is awesome.

Check out more of Jero’s paintings on his facebook page or his behance profile.

*Also Jeronimo Zanacer will be in Miami this year – if you’d like to hang out with him, or are interested in his work please get in touch. He doesn’t have that many friends 😉
