Pablo Solari - Argentina


Artist Profile

Pablo Solari was born in April 1953 in Buenos Aires, Argentina. From four years old he started painting, he goes first to a children's art school, but then, at thirteen years old decides to continue his study on his own.

Study based on the classic reproductions, not wanting to study contemporary to have no influence, and find your own style, a personal way to express themselves through painting and drawing.

Born in a family of Italian immigrants, their parents and grandparents had arrived in Argentina in the decade of 30. This greatly influenced their training, because not only was educated in the traditions but also in Italian culture.

He was touring the study of the great masters, and the various artistic currents of all ages. Here was learning the techniques, composition and color, it took what served him for learning, and what did not share it away to avoid falling into those errors.

So Giotto takes as its Grand Master, he learns the composition. Miguel Angel takes chromatic freedom, Fra Angelico how to combine colors, Caravaggio studied the garments, Rafael cleaning brush strokes of Van Gogh yellow falls also studied Fortuny in its contrasts.
It is studying the various techniques such as tempera, comics, advertising, comic books, but especially perfected in the drawing, achieving a high level at this point. Ink, pen, watercolor, and especially the oil on canvas.

With his mastery of drawing, and decided not to copy anything, studying all the elements you see, the faces, gestures, light and shadow. When he paints does not make preliminary sketches, but made the play in his mind, when "sees in his intelligence," he puts a white cloth in front of him and begins to paint directly. In this way it achieves absolute freedom, because not copy a sketch, is not limited by a cloth, but once defined the work and cuts the fabric, and puts the frame.

The reasons for his works, making reality. Sees a situation, elaborates in his mind, and then creates the work. It is free in the choice of subjects, does not accept directives.

His conception of a work is "a small mural". Think of one of his works as a small portion of a great scene. It is based on a concept, like the lens of a camera, where the object takes only a small portion of a great scene. That is why his paintings continue beyond the edge of the fabric ....

Has its own rules of composition, discards the established models. So it is that all the characters and environments are in the foreground. And with gestures of hands and arms, and eyes he will indicate to the viewer of the work, where to keep watching. So this does not leave the painting, but to stay in it, crossing it.

Also his Chromatic, is personal, rejects the chromaticity standards set, believing that limit, they take away freedom.
Pablo Solari always says "I play to invent colors." So that he does not think the composite colors, for example, think of a "violet" but think of a "blue and red", and does not use pure colors, but mix the colors directly on the canvas, and always each color has a small amount of another, usually one that is close to balance work and to be carrying a chromatic rhythm in his work.

His works are notable for the large number of characters, and complexity of elmentos, but all the characters and elements serve to reinforce a unique sense of the work. Thus achieves the Unit.

In his paintings, the subject matter is evident, poses for the observer to interpret and draw their own conclusions. And it puts many elements so that the message is eloquent. With this accomplished Clarity.

In his songwriting, both chromatic and compositional what, always looks nothing distracts the meaning of the work. Achieve Harmony.

His works have a social sense, but never paints a hopelessness. But it shows that there is hope, that despite a difficult situation no solution. It shows the worker, in his effort but it shows pride in his work, work that gives dignity to be honest.

His style is very personal, because having complete freedom not only have their own chromatic and compositional rules, not following any previous or current artistic current, already have their own "graphics" is unaware of everything and just painted.
In developing the work inside, no influence on anything or anyone.

In his style called "Interior Realism" for painting the inside people, not outside. Paint the feeling of his characters.

It is common to ask him "in an art exhibition, a thousand paintings, I recognize his works, why?". For this reason it is sought after by collectors, since he himself is defined as Italian classics made a Latin American painting.
