The bus of the Villa la Angostura’s Library
On November 25, 2016, to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the Biblioteca Popular Osvaldo Bayer, in Villa la Angostura, Neuquén, I began to paint an old bus. Full of colors, suns, birds and worlds, a few days later it was located at the main square of the town. The bus will be used as reading room and event hall for children, but also I hope it becomes an icon to invite new readers to approach to the wonderful library of this beautiful city of Patagonia.View article »

He called it “Suns and Flowers” to commemorate the mythical "Landing" of Mothers of the Plaza de Mayo at the ESMA, the building where the most dreadful concentration camp operated during the state terrorism of the military dictatorship that ruled Argentina between 1976 and 1983. Today the place is a Memorial Centre. You can see the live work in the videoView video »

The Children Reading Room Istvansch at the Community Library Osvaldo Bayer, in Villa La Angostura, Neuquén, offers plenty of good books for children, enthusiasm, passion, narrators who read out loud, good vibe and –also– an original mural painting made of EVA rubber, scissors and glue. It may be seen in the picture presiding over the room that bears Istvansch’s name. Istvansch has said: “This is a truly unexpected tribute.
