Visit to Luis Niveiro's studio

After seeing his exhibit at the Cenro Borges the week before, Grade 9 and 10 students had the opportunity to meet the Argentine artist Luis Niveiro at his home and studio. Niveiro spoke to us about his life, his work, the process of making art and his own collection of art by a great variety of Argentine artists.

Meeting Luis Niveiro was great! I was surprised by how easy he was to talk to, and what a free spirit he was. He told us about his thought process when he came up with the ideas to use address book pages and Chinese newspaper. Afterwards, we went to the top floor to eat empanadas and relax with him. It was such an amazing experience that i'm not sure it has hit me yet.- YuanYuan
