Self-taught artist Mauricio Ezequiel Paz Viola (b 1985; Carmelo, Colonia, Uruguay) embarked on his artistic journey early in life. Inspired by Matta, Miro and other pioneers, Paz Viola’s works are a constant quest to represent and re-create personal, inner worlds where objects and shapes seem to take on lives of their own, inviting the viewer to give them new meanings and use them to reflect the viewer’s own, inner truths.
"My work focuses on the spiritual, the essential, on the cosmic union, the future…I aim to create paintings that can help the viewer in their spiritual growth, and I believe that to be the direction of art in this millennium – spiritual growth more than social or political critique, as art is a manifestation of the spirit, which is the truth and the future of art." - Mauricio Paz Viola
