    About the artist

    Patxi Xabier Lezama Perier sculptor designer born in Zalla in 1967, (Municipality of the region of Las Encartaciones de Vizcaya), where he lived, studied and worked. A town known for its popular culture and especially for its mythology where superstitions were widespread in malignant supernatural beings, sorcerers and witchcraft, so the natives of Zalla are called by antonomasia Brujos. The primal basic matrix vibrated in the most intimate entrails of this artist who has been trying for many years to make known Basque mythology through his sculptures of iron, stone and wood, transmitting and solving, as well as providing semblance to this type of subversive imaginary Underground world, assuming systems of values that go beyond the visual, from a historical and cultural perspective of an ancient mythology inherited from the past that transmits to future generations.
