Pablo Atchugarry

Pablo Atchugarry (1954) is an Uruguayan artist, best known for his abstract sculptural art. His works are included in many major collections, both private and public, and he has held more than one hundred solo and collective exhibitions worldwide.

For each sculpture, Atchugarry personally selects an appropriate block and is actively involved in carving it, with minimal help from assistants. He works with white Carrara from Tuscany, gray stone from Bardiglio, black from Belgium, and pink from Portugal. Aside from working with stone, he utilizes bronze finished in various patinas, ceramic, and, more rarely, various types of wood.

Atchugarry currently lives and works between Lecco in Italy and Manantiales in Uruguay where he oversees the development of the FundaciĆ³n Pablo Atchugarry and the international monumental sculpture park, as well as teaching and promoting art.
