Claudio Goldini (1942), Plastic Artist and Medicine Doctor lives in Buenos Aires, he has an outstanding career in expressionism in Argentina.
Raúl Santana, former director of the Museum of Modern Art of Buenos Aires, said from Goldini´s paints in 1995: "...Undoubtedly expressionist, his work renders visions that are the result of powerful subjectivity. It comments on some aspects of contemporary life, turning the human body into a landscape, adequate for expressing mysterious traces and emblems, which are rejected by the world of reason..."
