Eolo Pons (1914-2009) was an Argentine painter.
Eolo Pons was born in Buenos Aires. He studied from 1935-38 in the studio of the influential Argentine painter and teacher Lino Enea Spilimbergo; among Pons' fellow students were his close friends figurative painters Leopoldo Presas (b. 1915) and Luis Lusnich (1911-1995). Subsequently, Eolo Pons worked in the printmaking studio of Surrealist graphic artists Jose Planas Casas (1900-1960), Juan Batlle Planas (1911-1966) and Pompeyo Audivert (1900-1977).
Eolo Pons' work is sometimes associated with that of his philosophical mentor Carlos Giambiagi (1887-1965), a native of Uruguay who was known for his writings on art and aesthetics and for his small paintings of Misiones Province landscapes. From 1958-1964, together with indigenous painter Medardo Pantoja (1906-1976), Jorge Gnecco (1914-1965), and Luis Pellegrini, Eolo Pons established and taught at the Provincial Fine Arts School of Jujuy, in the Andean northwest of Argentina.
