MILU CORRECH (AR)
Milu Correch is an Argentinean artist best known for her large-scale murals that tend to dissect aesthetic and moral certainties. A gifted painter and provocateur, over the past few years she has established herself as one of South America’s leading figurative mural artists.
Encouraged by the work and teachings of renowned Argentinian muralists Lean Frizzera and Emy Mariani she began to “think in m2” and upscale the images in her sketchbooks to the size of buildings in 2011.
Taking inspiration from literature, film and illustration combined with her own research into local histories, Correch’s narrative-based paintings continue the rich tradition of Latin American muralism. Her “kids on cars” series contained ‘plotlines’ ranging from Classical mythology to Romantic symbolism while her recently body of work explores the brutal history of western Europe’s Witchcraft Trials, which were responsible for the deaths of over 40,000 men and women from the late 16th to early 18th century.
Milu Correch lives and works in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
