SAVIO is a Contemporary Latin American artist born in Buenos Aires, Argentina. She grew up in an Italian family listening to classical music, going to the Colon Theater Opera House and studying classical ballet. She won her first art award at the age of 7 years old, entering a contest for the Continental Drawing School via correspondence. She then showed up at the Buenos Aires Botanical Gardens to participate in an outdoor Plein Air competition at the age of 14- and forgot her brushes! In a panic, she improvised and painted with her fingers, taking the First Place Award. Her next recognition came from the Eduardo Sivori Museum for a colorful depiction of a dancer in oil pastels.
