Pablo Bruera

Born in 1972 - Uruguay

BIOGRAPHY

Pablo Bruera was born in Uruguay (Montevideo, 1972), and he lives today in Barcelona.

He is a sculptor and he produces mobile art, sculptures that move and that the viewers are invited to touch.
His works require the active participation of the spectators through their curiosity, his sensitivity and his desire to play and to discover.

The artist’s quest for the essential, for reaching the roots, is impressive. His "search for purity" has two main guidelines:
- materializing his certainty that " creation is transformation";
- creating art that is accessible.

He has been living in Spain since 2001, he has exposed in museums, foundations, art salons and galleries in different cities: Barcelona, Madrid, but also London, Montevideo, Sao Paolo, Vienna. One of his works has been acquired by the Museum of contemporary art of Montevideo in Uruguay and one of his monumental sculptures was acquired by the Villa Casas Foundation from Palafrugell (Costa Brava, Spain).
In October and November 2011, on the Rambla de Catalunya in Barcelona, the passers-by were able to admire, touch, and modify his monumental kinetic sculpture "mobile art ".

With his last series "Please touch", he proposes art that is accessible to everyone. He makes the sensory and intellectual experience of kinetic art accessible and fun for everybody.
