Oscar Maxera was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina.

After he finished his academic studies, he went through an early period of figurative style. Soon after he, came into contact with the latest trends and innovations of Modern Art, particularly of those introduced by the great masters of geometry. He later developed their contributions and added his own.

This new starting point drove him into changing techniques as well as means of expressions, thus devoting himself to a profound analysis of color used to express subtle relationships through finely outlined geometric shapes

In 1974, an exhibit was held at the Van Riel gallery where the artist shown the accomplishments of his new abstract painting, and started a constant expressive exploration of artistic and non artistic materials; his hallmark for good. Later, in 1981, Maxera settles down in the United States where he has been living and working ever since, in New York, uptown. His art has been greatly strengthened and nurtured by the stimuli of this significant change.

His works are now more radiant an lyrical showing though contradictorily enough, life and human feelings through mathematical shapes. Maxera makes the most of various types of materials from the environment, to later transform them into artistic subject matter with the full force of his creativity and uniqueness.
