Luis Felipe Noé (b. 1933) is an influential Argentine artist, author, educator, and intellectual from Buenos Aires. Actively involved in the art world in both North and South America, he is widely recognized as the founder of the Otra Figuration [Another Figuration] movement in 1961, and later was a powerful influence in the Neofiguration [New Figuration] movement. He briefly studied painting under Horacio Butler from 1950–52, before receiving a degree in law and working as an art critic and journalist, when he wrote for periodicals such as El Mundo and La Prensa. His career as a visual artist was launched at his first opening at the Galeria Witcomb in 1959. His work was influenced by fellow Argentine artists Sarah Grilo and José Antonio Fernández-Muro, as well as Antonio Berni and the Boa group. His oeuvre, along with that of the Otra Figuration movement, emphasizes the reality of chaos in its kinetic style, representation of distorted figures and animals, and allusions to politics. Noé is recognized as a pioneer in experimental drawing, and his desire to visually link social dislocation with structural dislocation. In 1965, he published a landmark theoretical text, known as Antiestética [Anti-aesthetics], a chapter of which is reproduced in this online archive.
