The artists

Eduardo Nicolai
llustrator, draftsman and watercolorist. He has painted the landscapes of this city for more than 20 years, his watercolors capture the essence of the Ushuaian landscape, the snowfalls, the views of Mount Olivia or the sailboats in the bay, all corners where the landscape prevails. It has also colored the images of the city when it was a small village with its houses of wood and sheet metal and its flimsy fences.

Luis Marcelo Morais
Ilustrator and draftsman. At an early age he began his studies with the best Argentine artists such as Gatti, Marchi and Genovés. In 2012 and 2013 in Spain he participated in workshops with Spanish realism teachers such as Antonio López García, Andrés García Ibáñez and Golucho. His oil paintings show a tireless and delicate search for precision in shapes and colors. Ushuaia has impacted him by the majesty of the landscape and in them he captures the climates, the light and the atmospheres of all the corners where his gaze rests.
