Based In: Patagonia, Argentina
Austrian by birth and Patagonian by adoption was brought to Argentina, at the age of 3, by his parents who had felt at close range of the ravages of the war in Europe.
Three generations were dedicated to Fine Art. In the beginning, it was Konstanino Miciu, who graduated many years earlier from the Vienna Art School and came to Argentina with his wife and two sons, Demetrio and Georg. His two sons followed his steps, but it was Georg who became the best-known artist in Argentina and abroad, with his remarkable skill in the use of the palette knife.
Georg is definitely an Impressionist who uses movement and material with an informal audacity. His paintings, rendered in thickly generous strokes by means of a palette knife, show a unique mastership, and remind us, at first sight, of Impressionistic techniques. Like the Impressionists, Georg works au plein air achieving a true communion with nature by means of his painting.
Georg opened solo shows in Jerusalem, Paris, Stuttgart, Barcelona, and Granada, showing works of Patagonia.
Returning to Argentina, they settled in the Sierras of Córdoba. In 1990, Miciú worked with his friend and collaborator Jorge Bonzano to open “Sala de Georg” in Villa Giardino. They then moved to San Martin de los Andes. His work has since rotated around exhibitions in Rosario, Córdoba, Buenos Aires, Bariloche, Mar del Plata, and abroad in Granada, Almeria, and in San Francisco and Montecito in California- over 300 individual exhibitions.
In 1998, the exposition "Three Generations"opened in Buenos Aires at the National Museum of Decorative Art.
In 2006, Jorge Bonzano co-worked again to start the construction of the museum "Georg Collection" in San Martin de los Andes. This building has became a must-go place to visit if you are in region.
