Julio Alpuy trained in the seminal Taller Torres-García, a workshop founded in Montevideo by Joaquín Torres-García to transmit to a younger generation his style of Universal Constructivism, an approach to abstraction inspired by a fusion of ancient American forms with the European avant-garde. In 1961, after almost two decades of working faithfully in Torres-García’s style, Alpuy moved to New York where he was able to develop his own distinctive style.
