Pablo Atchugarry – A journey between matter and light

Pablo Atchugarry’s father, also an artist, instilled in him the love for the trade. Not without result: Pablo held his first solo exhibition in Montevideo (Uruguay) when he was only 18. He developed not only as a painter, but also as a celebrated artist with materials such as cement, wood and metal.

In 2002, he received the Michelangelo Award in recognition of his artistic career; one year later, he represented Uruguay at the Venice Biennale. On the occasion of an exhibition in the Groeninge Museum in Bruges, an extensive monograph was published in which the artist talks about his life and work in detail in an interview.
