Artist of the moment……..Pablo Atchugarry

 

Pablo Atchugarry is a contemporary master sculptor from the country of Uruguay. Pablo Atchugarry was born in Montevideo, Uruguay in the year 1954.

The artist was encouraged by his father to pursue his interest in art.

Atchugarry began sculpting in his preferred medium of marble in 1979. When he began as a sculptor he used iron, cement, and wood.

In 1982 he relocated to the city of Carrara, Italy. One of the reasons for this change was the wonderful marble stone he found there.

In this clip we visit the artist in his studio:

Atchugarry was a participant in the 2003 Venice Biennial.

The artist is now based out of Lecca, Italy and Manantiales, Uruguay.

Price range information: Most works are in marble and range from $40,000 to $200,000.

I enjoy the shapes and designs used by Atchugarry. They are very abstract with flowing shapes and movement.
