PAUL MOTTO

My Artistic universe

Pablo Lema

Visual artist

«Descubrí mi interés por el dibujo desde pequeño. A la edad de ocho años mi padre me invita a su lugar de trabajo, ahí se realiza un concurso de dibujo y pintura con otros niños del pueblo, mi primer premio, una caja de lápices y comienza esta hermosa aventura. En un momento de mucha angustia, decido darle sentido a esta actividad que, hasta ese entonces, solo era un pasatiempos. De esta manera, me hago mas consciente del rol que me corresponde como habitante de este territorio y trato de responder a esa realidad.

La precariedad y el aislamiento han sido siempre las mejores compañeras, en ellas siempre encuentro la necesidad de crear».
