Yaya Firpo was born in Victoria, Entre Ríos. He studied at the school of Fine Arts “Dr. Raúl Trucco ”obtaining the titles of
Superior Plastic Director and Senior Professor in Plastic Arts.
Yaya Firpo uses a kind of reverse mapping—meticulously disrupted maps of the world. Every developed nation-state has
now been occupied by immigrants from developing nations, and the maps attest to this re-conquest. While the world
burns, Yaya Firpo sews and mixes pieces of flags that could be the sacred rags of an imaginary nation and carefree of its
limits, cut and paste strips of planispheres that become multicolored and delusional maps, invent tickets that inste ad of
heroes or battle scenes have flies, fish bones and barbed wires. Tear, disassemble and rejoin to obtain a motley set of
possible worlds and their possible emblems.
