Eduardo Malara was born in Buenos Aires in 1948. Since his youth, he has worked professionally in a family business making and selling women's clothing. In 1993, he traveled to New York for treatment for his oldest son, who had a serious health problem. His first experience with art came from "The Joy of Painting," a television program in which artist Bob Ross shared the basics of painting. After his son passed away at the end of 1997, he returned to Buenos Aires where he continued to develop his painting skills. He never took classes, but received some instruction from his youngest son who currently has a professor’s degree in Fine Arts.
Eduardo is self-taught, which means he paints without academic restrictions or limits. From the beginning, he explored lighting on still-life paintings and recreates, with a notable freshness, the Buenos Aires province landscapes: its fields and skies, the sporadic groups of trees, its marshes and lakes. He uses oils almost exclusively to express his work. His works are figurative; there are no daring strokes or random paintings.
A unique detail are the letters “pgD” found beneath his signature on each work of art. These letters, meaning “for the glory of God” are an acknowledgment of God, from whom the artist believes he received the grace and power to express his work.
