Vicky Barranguet was born in Montevideo, Uruguay in 1973. In 1996 she moved to Boston and in 1997 to NY, where she studied with Larry Poons, William Scharf, and Frank O'Caine at The Art Students League of New York in Manhattan. In 2001, she was awarded with a Merit Scholarship from the judges and curators of "The Frick Collection" and her work was then exhibited at Lincoln Center’s Cork Gallery. Her studies with master painters, such as Larry Poons and William Scharf, propelled her to find a voice of her own and a colorful expression about life, emotions, and music. Her spontaneous and daring works, led to the creation of an open minded art approach, where she combines painting with other art forms. Vicky has been the subject of solo and group exhibitions in New York and can be found in private collections throughout Europe, Asia, North, Central and South America.
