Armando Repetto was born in Buenos Aires in 1893. 
Studied Civil Engineering, profession he practiced and of which he was a teacher. 
New in 1940, near the age of 50, he made his first solo exhibition, with immediate success, having studied at the Stimulus Association of Fine Arts. 
At the age of 60 he abandoned engineering to devote himself to painting alone. 
His style is characterized by the strictness of technical drawing. Yet he seeks the poetry of reality.

The work of the misty, stormy or dim-lit skies stands out in his art, also marked by a detailed work of different grey tones. 
In its themes are the “Gaucho” figures, the still lives, the world of work and the rural and urban landscapes (especially those of the neighborhood of La Boca).

He joins the Poetic Reality Group with artists Cleto Ciocchini, David Heynemann, Gastotón Jarry and Clemente Lococo. With them, in 1957, he held a collective exhibition in New York City, which adds to the numerous individual and group exhibitions he has made throughout his career. 
He died in April the 2nd, 1968 in Buenos Aires.
