PABLO CARPIO

Pablo Carpio (1979, Madrid) is a visual artist, he works mainly with acrylic and its versatility to trick the eye into thinking the techniques he uses are something they are not. He has lived and worked in Mexico City, Berlin, Buenos Aires, Nueva York and he has relocated recently to Madrid, where he is currently living and working. His clearly recognizable works are based in a deep reflection of what it means to create a painting, and if the media is what defines the type of art it is or if the artists do have that freedom. Can a three dimensional work be called a painting? Can a piece that only uses painting materials like acrylic and canvas be considered a sculpture?

Pablo Carpio's work is developed as a formal exploration that opens a reflection on one's own poetics of its construction, investigating the nature of the pictorial medium, the process of creation and its plasticity. He aims to explore, through confrontation with the material, the limits of painting and its transformation, and consequently set dialogues with other disciplines. Movement and change interact in his work as a metaphor of constant and rapid social metamorphosis, continuing to explore new dynamics of construction and development of the paintings to meet an indeterminate and transformative visual reference.

His work Bound (Red), 2013 was awarder with the ArtSlant Awards, 2nd 2014 ArtSlant Prize Showcase Juried Winner in the Painting category.

Carpio's works have been exhibited in spaces such as the New York Arts Foundation (2013), city where he has developed part of his career, Deutsche Bank's Americas Foundation (New York, 2013), Waterfall Mansion & Gallery (New York, 2014), The Active Space (New York), the 3rd edition of the Areatec Biennial of Visual Arts (Buenos Aires, 2014), Petit Palace Savoy Alfonso XII (Madrid, 2016), Concepto Hudson Gallery (Husdson, NY), or Lite-Haus Galerie (Berlin, 2016), among others.
