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. Buenos Aires is where Buigues 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. Buigues currently lives and works in Oakland, California. Her 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 people, the state of the world, the human condition. The multiple layers of color and detail often times contain subtle observations and a darker sense of humor.
