About me

Alejo Dillor (born in 1995, in Buenos Aires, Argentina) is a visual artist, and teacher, and holds a Bachelor’s degree in Arts Management and History from the University of Salvador. He is pursuing a Master’s degree in Cultural Management at the University of San Andrés.

In 2019, he started his project “Punto Rosa” to explore, through photography and critique, different ways of thinking about homosexuality, homoeroticism, and masculinities.

In his teaching career, he works as a professor in Aesthetics (UCES) and a teaching assistant in Photography (UBA, UCES). He also conducts his own workshops for artists.

In November 2019, he was awarded the Young Stimulus Prize in the 7th Edition of the ArtexArte Prize by the Alfonso and Luz Castillo Foundation. Currently, he is represented by The Little Black Gallery of London for the project “BOYS! BOYS! BOYS!” and by Galería COLADA in Argentina.

Statement

My work is composed of nostalgic moments like a personal diary that is in constant movement and holds thoughts and records of an eternal playful youth hidden in minimal, barely perceptible gestures, fragilities, and impulses that we get used to hiding under a shield in our everyday life, but that they appear in intimacy.
