Alejandro Corujeira studiesd at the School of Fine Arts in Buenos Aires and moved to Spain in 1991 where he settled. His background is based on a European constructivist tradition from the interwar period. The Uruguayan Joaquín Torres García is one of the evident influences in his early works, where geometry plays a central role. Another more direct influence is the one of his compatriot Alfredo Hlito, co-founding member of Asociación Arte Concreto Invención and signatory of the Manifiesto Invencionista from 1946. Over time, Corujeira’s trajectory evolves and takes a step beyond geometry. The artist pursues immersion in an organic poetry, where forms do not develop in terms of decipherable parameters but evolve enigmatically.
Alejandro Corujeira’s work is featured in the collections of the Museo de Arte Contemporáneo in Panama; the Fundación Coca-Cola in Madrid; the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía in Madrid; the Spanish Bank Collection; the Museo Municipal de Madrid; the Blanton Museum of Art in Texas; the Instituto Valenciano de Arte Moderno in Valencia; the Todisa Collection and the Patricia Phelps de Cisneros Collection.
