Noé, Luis Felipe

(b Buenos Aires, 26 May 1933). Argentine painter and theorist. He studied under Horacio Butler and in the early 1960s developed a figurative style of painting based on chaos as an organizing principle. Such works were shown in 1961, alongside paintings by Rómulo Macció, Ernesto Deira and Jorge de la Vega, in an exhibition entitled Otra figuración (Buenos Aires, Gal. Peuser), which proved a milestone in the renewal of painting in Argentina through its combination of Neo-Expressionist style, unconventional procedures and mixed media techniques, all of which helped turn the human figure into a bold, rebellious image.
