Vicky Barranguet is a painter born in Montevideo, Uruguay that currently lives and works in New York. In 1997, she studied with Larry Poons, William Scharf, and Frank O'Caine at The Art Students League of New York in Manhattan. Her studies with master painters, such as Larry Poons and William Scharf, propelled her to find a voice of her own and a colorful expression of life, emotions, and music. Her spontaneous and daring works led to the creation of an open minded art approach, where she combines painting with other art forms. Vicky has been the subject of solo and group exhibitions in New York and can be found in private collections throughout Europe, Asia, North, Central and South America.
Vicky has participated in many exhibitions nationally and internationally and her paintings have also been acquired by various private collections. She created in 2005 the show: Painting Music, a live painting - music show, touring since then through out the world, with original music, by her partner Gustavo Casenave and participation of Jane Ira Bloom y Federico Britos. In 2006, she created a special collection of hand painted dresses, presenting them in Uruguay’s Fashion Week '06, '07 & '08, collaborating with different designers. In 2010 she was the featured artist for Jodi Arnold’s 2010 collection in New York City, featured in the New York Times.
