Ernesto Deira

Jul 26, 1928 - Jul 1, 1986

Ernesto Deira was an Argentine artist associated with the Nueva Figuración movement in Latin America. He studied with Leopoldo Torres Agüero and Leopoldo Presas in the 1950s. Then, in 1961, he joined Jorge de la Vega, Rómulo Macció and Luis Felipe Noé in an exhibition entitled "Otra Figuración". After the exhibition, they formed a group of the same name, which shared studio space and exhibited together until 1966. Together they called for a return to figurative art, rejecting both abstraction and traditional forms of representation. Diera's own style was highly expressive, linear, and often grotesque. He later moved to Paris, where he died in 1986.
