Varda Caivano, born Buenos Aires (1971), graduated from her masters at the Royal College of Art (London) in 2004, having previously been educated to degree level in sciences (Biology), and humanities (Art History), the latter taken at the University of Buenos Aires in Argentina. On moving to the United Kingdom in the early 2000s to complete a graduate diploma at Goldsmiths University in Fine Art, she followed this with her RCA MA, where Caivano is now Faculty Lecturer in painting, alongside her commitment as artist ‘supervisor’ of the independent studio programme at De Ateliers in Amsterdam, Holland.
Residencies undertaken recently include a recent research period, courtesy of CCA Andratx, Mallorca, in Spain, a space and time which has informed key aspects of her material and investigative thinking for this exhibition at Tomio Koyama Gallery in Tokyo.
