1955   Born in Buenos Aires, Argentina
1970s   School of Architecture University of Buenos Aires, Argentina
1970s   University of Buenos Aires, Studied Photography
1979   Moved to US
  The grandson of an oil-on-canvas artist and son of a Master Embroidery Designer. Roberto went on to first study photography and later architecture at the University of Buenos Aires. In 1979 he moved to the United States where experimentation with various artistic forms and media led to his decision to pursue a career in the arts. As he continued to hone his craft, Azank began painting brightly colored abstract works in acrylics. By the late eighties, his style had evolved from abstract to figurative and he started painting in oils and found in his still life works the definitive style for which he is known.

Roberto’s canvases convey a sense of hyper-reality through his bold use of color, precise line and controlled composition. His rendering of common objects such as flowers, fruits and curvaceous vessels set against the background of almost fauvist bisected bold color planes is being exemplified by superb draftsmanship. These color planes, often indescribable in hue, are the cornerstone of Azank=s work, while the still life objects act as vehicles for exploration of positive and negative space, placement and scale. He elects to omit unnecessary ornamentation from his compositions, choosing instead to emphasize the precision and draftsmanship he originally investigated in architecture school. Azank does not paint Still Lifes, but rather portraits of non-living objects, he has returned the romantic tradition of still life painting to its rightful place and made a love for the sublime acceptable.

Now at mid career, Roberto Azank describes himself as a metaclassical artist whose interests lie in the abstract qualities of realism as opposed to the photographic copying of nature.
