Mau Samayoa

El Salvador, 1989.

Period of residence in Piramidón: May to July 2022 & March to May 2023

Work: Mau's work focuses on a single medium, paper, which he uses to create abstract structures on the surface using art restoration techniques. His mostly monochrome pieces conserve the blank paper to generate a series of patterns and textures visible through the interaction of light and shadow.
