Pablo was born the 23rd of August, 1954 in Montevideo, Uruguay. He was inspired in his artistic endeavors by his father Pedro, an art lover and a frequent presence at the workshop of Uruguayan master Joaquín Torres García. From a very young age he perceived the great interest and aptitude Pablo had manifested in art, so he stimulated him to enter the field of painting. Nowadays he represents a reality in art and international sculpture, within the most interesting and dynamic, bearing in mind how his international activities generate for him such great exchange with other artists, and how he builds with ease a communication bridge between the art of Europe and Latin America.

ARLOS CRUZ DIEZ (Caracas, Venezuela, 1923). Painter, sculptor and graphic designer known internationally as one of the major representatives of kinetic painting. Resides in France since 1956, where he was part of theNouvelle Tendance. In 1965, he participates in the The Responsive Eye exhibition organized by the Museum of Modern Art of New York. The Museum of Graphic Arts of Caracas was established under his guidance, and in 1971 he was awarded the National Plastic Arts Prize in that same city.

MATEO MANAURE (Uracoa, Venezuela, 1926). Painter, sculptor and graphic designer. Studied at the Plastic Arts School of Caracas, receiving the Plastic Arts National Prize in 1947. While in Paris, he founded the group Los disidentes which championed geometric abstraction. Upon his return to Caracas, he completed a mural at Ciudad Universitaria. In 1955, the Fine Arts Museum of that city organized a retrospective of his work. Manaure abandoned abstraction with his series Cuvisiones and his polychromatic columns. In 1950, he was awarded the John Boulton Prize and in 1965 the Armando Reverón Prize presented by the Venezuelan Plastic Arts Association.
Cesar Paternosto (b.1931, La Plata, Argentina. Lives and works in Spain since 2004). Since the mid 60′s, when this sculptor, painter, writer and curator living in New York, began to change the paradigms of abstraction with monochromatic wall installations. His return to the south of the continent expanded their vision of geometry revealing a genesis of forms present in the pre-Columbian legacy sculptural and universal tradition of textiles. It works with indigenous names entitled to designate the time, because its purpose is to extend the boundaries of inner perception through a poetical form. It may take up to Mondrian’s legacy extreme practice of leaving the front surface and locate blank colored geometric shapes on the sides of the box, or report beyond how intertwined the past ancestral continental with the western edge to create new horizons in geometric abstraction. The representation in his work ultimately refers to the structure of thought. He trained at the Institute of Philosophy of the National University of La Plata, Argentina, won a Guggenheim Fellowship in 1972, was a visiting professor at American universities and his work is part of collections permanents the Museum of Modern Art and the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York, or the Menil Collection, Houston, Texas, among other

Barranquilla. Colombia, 1943 – 2013 †
Autodidactic, he defined himself towards the mid-1960′s , as an abstractionist who identify himself with some of the proportions of Frank Stella and the minimalist, always adhering to such coherent growth that it has made him a painter of lines without becoming a draftsman in the orthodox meaning of term. The symbolism, composition and color of a good portion of his works are inspired by religious ornaments.
In 1987, he had his first retrospective exhibition at the Museum of Contemporary Art of Bogotá. Throughout his life, he has distinguished himself as a quiet artist who works isolated from the word and from its potential honors.
