Mixed Media Artist.
Born in Caracas, Venezuela, in 1968. Studied drawing and painting at the Cristóbal Rojas School of Arts; Graphic Design at the Academia de Artes Avanzadas, drawing at the Art Students League of New York and History at the Universidad Central de Venezuela, where he started a brilliant professional career as a professor-researcher in the area of History of Science y and Theory of History.
Bifano’s artistic oeuvre is the product of a wide range of interdisciplinary inspirations. His works are immersed in kinetic art, op art, pop art and the Bauhause movement. Inspired by artists such as Adolf Fleischmann, Víctor Vasarely, Gego, and Carlos Cruz Diez, Bifano explores the relationships between color, shape shifting, movement, light, texture, and human perception.
His works reflect his interest in constant change, movement, light, textures and color.
“The main idea that inspires and sustains my work is based on the possibility of transforming something ephemeral into permanent. To materialize this, I use disposable paper, which is a single-use product, into a durable work of art.
I create my artwork by applying my own technique, this allows me to make completely original and unique compositions in various sizes and styles.»
“I focus my interest in the dynamic of constant change, movement, light, textures, color and shape. My works change several times in an orderly and continuous dynamic of deconstruction and reconstruction that creates unity.
I carefully work with every detail in an attempt to reconcile the order and chaos present in the creation process.
My method seeks to connect movement with precision, color with shape, balance with chaos; searching for the illusion of existence.”
