Lazaro Hurtado is an artist currently living in Buenos Aires, were he works . Since early childhood he have the overwhelming need to create and explore the reality in a personal way. So thats how he would spend his afternoons after school , making mud sculptures and giving life to them by putting live insects inside . Seeing entire landscapes and beens on the moisture of the walls, feeling himself carried inside those worlds.
He states than more than an artist, he is a thinker.His work born from the necesity of expresing thoughts and conceptions of the World that surrounds him. He Works with acrylics but manages a variety of techniques and has started to experiment in the digital field.
The work of the artist shows a rich variety of perceptions and personal explorations.
The images he offers us project humanistic messages, the nature of mankind, the possible and the ridiculous. He makes comments about reality and the social forces and orders, but at the same time he demostrates a playful face, ironic in some cases.
The transcription of inner alchemies into paintings of surrealist character wakes a curiosity in the viewer, that in some point is transported, and in many cases his pictorial visions generate a particular and profound resonance with whom thats sees them. His paintings and artworks are the projection of his mind process . The spectators would often find themselves been tickle by the ideas and concepts on reality and human behaviour that he seems to contemplate and rebuilt on his mind.
The images you see are the working mechanics of a brain on a mind made world...
