The Taller de Arte Mural (Mural Art Workshop) was founded in 1945 by a group of leading Argentine-based artists with a common vision of promoting Muralism as a nation-wide public art program. The workshop was comprised of Antonio Berni (born 1905, Rosario; died 1981, Buenos Aires), Juan Carlos Castagnino (born 1908, Mar del Plata; died 1972, Buenos Aires), Manuel Colmiero Guimaraes (born 1901, Pontevedra, Galicia, Spain; died 1991, Salvaterra de Miño, Galicia, Spain), Lino Enea Spilimbergo (born 1896, Buenos Aires; died 1964, Unquillo, Córdoba, Argentina) and Demetrio Urruchúa (born 1902, Pehuajó, Argentina; died 1978, Buenos Aires). Together, these artists collaborated to produce the renowned murals of the Galerías Pacífico in Buenos Aires.
