  2. Leon Ferrari

    Born in 1920, Buenos Aires, León Ferrari was raised in a Catholic environment where he worked for his father constructing and painting churches after he graduated from the Universidad de Buenos Aires (1947) with a degree in Engineering. León started working with ceramics when his family had to move to Rome (1953-1955) to treat his first daughter Mariela for Tuberculous Meningitis. There he discovered his love of clay and ceramic forms, which landed him his first solo show in Milan and began his association with other artists such as Lucio Fontana, Renato Marino and Meli. Ferrari continued on to have one man shows in Argentina and to raise criticism from the church and newspapers through his sarcastic religious and political works such as The Impregnating Tree (the first to openly criticize Christianity). His international acclaim began after his politically induced self-exile to Sao Paulo, Brazil in 1976 after the many military crimes which took place over a coup d’état in March of that year.
