Gonzalo Anton is a popular figure here, as well as one The Vines of Mendoza's favorite local artists in Mendoza. We would like to introduce you to his art and you should also make sure you stop by his studio (www.gonzaloanton.com), which is set amidst some of the best local wineries and vineyards. Stopping by ANTON´s atelier in Chacras de Coria and having a glass of the finest local Malbec while contemplating his beautiful paintings is “a must” when coming to Mendoza. As ANTON told us today “The atelier is my workplace and resting spot for art lovers and friends. They come and just relax on the sofa while looking at some catalogs, art books and paintings on the wall, while listening to some soft tango”.
Anton lives in peaceful Mendoza but his art career is international. He has garnered a lot of international press and participated in the last Art Basel Miami Beach 2008 and was recently invited again to Art Basel Switzerland 2009, the largest art fair in the world. He has also exhibited his artwork in the Miami international art fair Arteamericas, selected by the prominent USA art gallery Cremata -where he is exhibiting yet again in September; along with press coverage and interviews from national and foreign newspaper including the Miami Herald.
Be sure you don´t miss his artwork and atelier when visiting Argentina.
