After a brief attendance at the National School of Fine Arts, at age 19, Diego Gravinese had his first exhibitions in Buenos Aires, first in the mythical Giesso Space, then the Casal de Catalunya, following the Ibero-American Cooperation Institute (ICI) and eventually at Ruth Benzacar gallery with which he worked for more than 10 years, and in which he made his iconic show “Surfer” in 1997.
