Quilmes, Buenos Aires
Virginia Palomeque was born in Buenos Aires (Argentina) on 17th January 1961. She has been painting and drawing since a very young age, attending various workshops and art
schools. Later, she gained a place at the prestigious
Manuel Belgrano National College of Fine Arts from
which she graduated in 1989.
Her work has been influenced by Expressionism and
Realism, but it is the imprint of her own personality
that makes it remarkable. The intensity of her
painting and the singularity of her themes, developed
through the bold use of colour in its purest
expression, capture the imagination and enthrall
spectators at all her shows.
She has been exhibiting her work since 1990, has
participated in many National, Provincial and
Municipal art shows and has been awarded numerous
prizes and honours.
She currently works in digital painting, illustration and matte paintings
