B imbi Larraburu is a visual artist from Ciudad de Buenos Aires, Argentina. Influenced by architectural deconstruction and urban life, her images are a collection of illusory spaces. Her practice explores the singularity of the repetition and the tension between order and chaos using the architectural language on the visual arts.

The canvas is both a laboratory and a playground for Argentinian painter Bimbi Larraburu, who creates abstract oils with wit, energy, and emotional acuity. Larraburu pulls elements of fragmentation, obfuscation, and movement into her compositions. She builds each painting out of shapes that are somewhere between quick, carefree brushstrokes and whole, constructed forms. Some of these shapes approach perfect squares while others undulate in the unseen current of the painting. Some contain multitudes of color. Some are missing a closing side and, as a result, bleed into the background. These little shapes bounce off each other, stick together at the edges, congeal, and pull each other along in chains. Larraburu uses them to create structures that are alternately sturdy, flexible, and altogether liquid.

Larraburu maintains her own studio in Buenos Aires, Argentina. She has participated in both solo and group exhibitions all around her home country. Reconocimientos/Awards: 2012 - Mención de honor. - Salón Casa Carnacini. 2015 - Exhibición declarada de interés cultural. - Concejo Deliberante de San Antonio de Areco.
