Artist

Carlos Pazos


(Barcelona, 1949 - )

The artist held his first exhibition when he was twenty years old at the Ateneu Barcelonès. Since then, he has forged a distinguished career during which he has combined several languages, from photography to performance, and not least his objet trouvé work using found objects from all kinds of sources. His artworks combine pop art and arte povera, or poor art, with surrealist objects, within a conceptualism that involves the assembly of such mementos to evoke a tiny allegorical, poetic planet, laced with sarcasm. His oeuvre is one of the most unique and sophisticated poetics in contemporary Catalan and Spanish art in the last fifty years.
