_Sillages - Solo Show 

LEE-BAUWENS gallery is pleased to present the work of the Uruguayan-Catalan artist, Mauricio SBARBARO, born in Montevideo on January 26, 1960.

During his studies of architecture at the Faculty of Montevideo, he also taking painting classes with the painter Miguel Ángel Pareja (1984) who taught him the composition from the color.

In 1993, Mauricio SBARBARO immigrated to Europe and settled in Cadaqués, in the north of Catalonia in Spain. It is on the shores of the Mediterranean that the artist, who has been sailing since his earliest childhood, speaks of the sea as his only homeland. The artist likes to refer to the artists of universal and Catalan painting as Torres Garcia, Miro and Tàpies.

From 1996, his work is moving towards geometric abstraction where the line, the planes and the colors capture most of the seascape.

Sbarbaro is an urban planner of paintings with a playful perspective. He invites us to explore his spaces, his particular lay-out and itineraries, the WAKES of long-distance journeys over land and sea that he plays out to unite through his artwork. The artist brings his Game to life, beyond the medium, and projects us into a new space.

_OPENING BRUNCH - In the presence of the artist, Mauricio Sbarbaro - SUNDAY 25.11.2018  from 13:00 - 19:00  / EXHIBITION until 22.12.2018
