Pablo Solari


The repetition of forms and figures create a pattern that echoes like a canon. Crystal clear feelings are conveyed by the gaudy colours, which are cyclically repeated, giving birth to new patterns within those that already exist. Everything resembles a loop of matryoshka dolls and his characters seem to multiply continuously. The rhythm obtained through these recurring notes is one that echoes and unites the whole symphony, fostering an inner refrain. Solari, through the complexity of his work, clings himself to a homogeneity which almost exhibits a geometric trait and this is the element that allows for a more clarifying and intense message.

This intricate composition achieves a double expressive effect, something that becomes possible through the multiplicity of faces and glances, and also through the immensity of hands, which imperatively emphasizes the message. The chaotic crowds remind us of bags of goods or even animal cages whose capacity has been largely surpassed.

It’s this overpopulated trait, as if everything was tight as canned sardines, that provokes a sort of asphyxiation, which is then sagaciously contradicted by Pablo, who always chooses to place an escape hatch, an open place through which the painting can breathe and the glance is able to naturally come out of the whole labyrinth. The frames are overloaded with tension, an element that gets more creased by the multitude of objects that makes them very busy, creating an almost hypnotic repetition.

The nature of his themes and motivations are essentially a social and humanistic one, with a special emphasis on inequality, poverty and the most disadvantaged. In a social critique, Solari portays the working and rural class in an interventionist manner. His characters exhibit a facial expression that mirrors their own life, their anguish and hardships and when they close their eyes, they do it not for pleasure, but out of despair or weariness.

By Pedro Boaventura • Excerpt from Masters of Painting - Volume 1

Pablo Solari was born in April 1953 in the neighborhood of Flores of the Autonomous City of Buenos Aires, Argentina.

Since a very youg age he began to paint and throughout his life has evolved into an autodidactic artist, studying classical techniques and based on views. He lives in Buenos Aires and spent part of his life in Mendoza.

He has traveled to Italy to study the  master painters such as, Giotto, Fra Angelico and Michelangelo. Today he is a man who is artisticly mature. Simple, humble with strong values, this artist certainly has devoted his life to his craft.
