Pablo Carpio

Pablo Carpio (Madrid, Spain, 1979) is an artist who currently lives and works in Madrid. He has lived in New York (2004-05, 2011-16), where he develops part of his career, and in other cities such as Berlín, Buenos Aires and México City.  His work explores the material possibilities of painting itself, to build a language through highly textured abstract compositions, in a unique dialogue with color, gesture and matter. For the making of his works he prepares a paint paste with a mixture of materials from different sources, such us acrylic, sand and limestone, which together is almost a sculptural material, that allows him to expand the medium by questioning its own limits and reviewing its fundamentals. He was a recipient of the  Artist Mentoring Program (IAP) of the New York Foundation for the Arts (2013). His works have been exhibited nationally and internationally in spaces such as: New York Foundation for the Arts (New York, 2013), Deutsche Bank Americas Foundation (New York, 2013), Waterfall Mansion & Gallery (New York, 2014), the 3rd Edition of the Biennial of Visual Arts Areatec (Buenos Aires, 2014), Petit Palace Savoy Alfonso XII (Madrid, 2016) or Cerquone Projects (Madrid, Caracas, Miami, 2020). His works are part of private collections and institutions  internationally.
