Rocío Iannone is an Argentine visual artist currently based in Barcelona. She has a degree in Plastic Arts with a specialization in Drawing and a Masters in Aesthetics and Art Theory from the National University of La Plata, in Argentina. She studied drawing, painting and sculpture with Christian Mazzuca and Gabriel Busquets (Argentina), and at the BAA (Barcelona), as well as with different artists.
She works with different disciplines, such as ceramics, mural, drawing, painting and sculpture, but she is mainly dedicated to drawing and painting. She is strongly influenced by Francis Bacon and Jenny Saville, and the philosophy of Gilles Deleuze and Félix Guattari. Rocío thinks of painting as a way to experience intensities and sensations, she works with the human figure, space and color, as elements that interact and modify each other to generate forces and rhythms.
In her artistic production, she seeks that whoever interprets her work can experience the forces and sensations that occur in the painting, and thus connect with her own sensitivity from a corporal and not only discursive place.
Rocío has had several solo and group exhibitions in different cities of Argentina, Barcelona and Italy. She has been teaching drawing, painting and color theory workshops since 2018.
