Home / Gallery / Yvette Buigues


Yvette Buigues was born in Los Angeles, California, into a family of Spanish artists. Her father, Hector Buigues, was the most influential and inspirational force in Buigues' artistic upbringing. Born in Valencia, Spain and moved to Buenos Aires, as a young child, he is an internationally respected sculptor and designer. Yvette's grandfather, Pascual Buigues created monumental art for cities such as Buenos Aires, Mar del Plata and Valencia.


Buenos Aires is where Yvette received formal instruction in fine art illustration. Under the tutelage of Adrian Dorado, a contemporary constructivist painter, and Nicolas Bufidis, a master fresco artist and director of the Buenos Aires School of Fine Arts, she worked in graphite and colored pencil, focusing her efforts on technique and realism. 


Yvette's inspiration comes from no one place in particular; in her work one can see and feel her exploration of the emotional, physical and spiritual aspects of everyday life. Through bold images she speaks to relationships between Yvette Buigues in her Oakland Studiopeople, the state of the world, the human condition. The mulitple layers of color and detail often times contain subtle observations and a darker sense of humor.


Buigues works most often with acrylic paint. she finds great pleasure and touches base with whimsy in her pen and ink drawings, and experiments in seriography. Buigues has been an exhibiting artist for the past twenty years, her work has shown across the U.S.
