Bruno Patyn
Arquitectura del Alma

14.08.08 04.12.08

Since February 2008 Bruno Patyn resides in Buenos Aires, where he is momentarily deepening his knowledge in one of his passions, Tango.

Despite his training with a specialization in digital media at the Sint-Lukas Higher School of Fine Arts, Brussels, since 2006 he uses painting and engraving as means of expression. In 2007, he completed a residency at the lithographic workshop of the Frans Masereel Graphic Center in Belgium, where he began working on the Architecture of the Soul project.

Bruno Patyn is currently doing a long-term artistic residency within the sub30 program at Proyecto´ace in conjunction with an internship in graphic techniques, where he is currently investigating waterless photolithography and algraphy while continuing to venture into the fusion of graphic techniques and printing techniques such as transfer and chine collé.

The space that people call “home” can take as many different forms as there are individuals in the world. Even two people who live under the same roof will use different elements of their environment to argue because their house is also their home and because they feel comfortable or uncomfortable in it. Although this is related to space, forms and material elements, it is clear that it is mostly a very deep, personal and subjective psychological phenomenon. Architecture of the soul is a visual investigation that tries to capture the meanings of the space in which we live physically as well as mentally.

Its cosmopolitan and urban character vibrates to the rhythm of a great cultural offer that includes monuments, churches, museums, art galleries, opera, music and theaters; squares, parks and gardens with old groves; characteristic neighborhoods; large shopping centers and fairs.

Buenos Aires also show off about its variety of restaurants with all the cuisines of the world, as well as to have cafes and flower kiosks on every corner.

A neighborhood founded on the Jesuit farms in the 17th century

We are located in Colegiales neighborhood where the tree-lined streets, some of which still have their original cobblestones, invite you to walk. Although the apartment buildings advance, low houses still predominate. It is a district of the city where about 20 TV production companies, design studios, artist workshops and the Rock&Pop radio have been located. The neighborhood also has six squares, one of which pays homage to Mafalda, the Flea Market, shops, restaurants and cafes like its neighboring Barrios de Palermo and Belgrano, with which it limits.
