Patricia Queiruga was born in Cordoba, Argentina, in 1970 and since she was little she demonstrated an art inclination. Her art training began during childhood when she started to learn about artistic styles and different techniques. Later she graduates in medicine at Cordoba’s National University, later specializing in surgery and working as a medical surgeon. She depicts mainly abstract and realistic paintings, each one done by oil, that she leaves in her family house; in 2014 she attends seminars with already established artists in Buenos Aires and she studies composition, appreciating abstract expressionism, neoexpressionism and cubism .
In May 2016 she participates for the first time in a painting contest, winning a prize at the Salón de Otoño, Galería de Buenos Aires. In July of the same year she participates in a second contest organized in occasion of the bicentenary of Argentine Independence where she obtains for two of her paintings another prize and also a special mention for being an exceptional artist given by a jury recognized in the art world: art. Gustavo Madueño, art. Sara Moya Kozlowski, art. Mercedes Linares, art. Ma Teresa Bedzent. Afterwards, thanks to a contest invitation she is able to get in contact with a New York Gallery; she shows her portfolio and she gets called to partecipate in an exhibition. This is her first international exhibition, which embodied the opportunity to dedicate herself completely to art, calling herself “Patricia Queiruga Artworker” (term that represents her and with which she feels free).
