    About the artist

    Self-taught artist Mauricio Ezequiel Paz Viola (b 1985; Carmelo, Colonia, Uruguay) embarked on his artistic journey early in life. Dabbling in plastic art since 7, he has participated in various art competitions in his native Uruguay and abroad.

    Inspired by Matta, Miro and other pioneers, Paz Viola’s works are a constant quest to represent and re-create personal, inner worlds where objects and shapes seem to take on lives of their own, inviting the viewer to give them new meanings and use them to reflect the viewer’s own, inner truths.

    Exhibiting his work since 14, Paz Viola has shown his works in the Consulate of Argentina in Colonia, Uruguay as well as participated in collective exhibitions in Romulo Raggio Museum of Buenos Aires Fine Arts Museum of Parana in Argentina, as well as a plethora of art galleries and cultural centers.

    Paz Viola’s artworks have also been featured in art books, magazines and articles around the world such as Latin American Art Annual Review (Argentina), Hidden Treasure Art Magazine (UK) and have graced private collections in United States, Panama, Argentina, Uruguay, Venezuela, Chile.
