Carlos Pazos

Barcelona, 1949.

Period of residence in Piramidón:

February 1992 - December 2008

Work: National Fine Arts Award 2004, the work of Carlos Pazos lies between the two main lines of force of Spanish art of the second half of the twentieth century: Informalism and Conceptualism. His work begins under the mark of european Pop Art and develops toward the language of the object, of the assembly and of the association of meanings. In his work there is also a strong relationship with Arte Povera, which gives prominence to the everyday element and its iconographic codes. Pazos’ work also corresponds to Neodadaism, Surrealism and the aesthetics of the silence of Duchamp, Warhol and Broodthaers.
