Ricardo Lanzarini

Estilo Arte Concreto

Ricardo Lanzarini (b.1963, Montevideo, Uruguay) is a key figure of the Uruguayan art scene and works mainly with ink on paper. He is a master of scales and, like a magician, works in all formats, from miniature drawings made using a magnifying glass to  monumental murals. His pen and ink drawings combine historical and autobiographical elements. Nietzsche, Kafka and Karl Marx, among others, appear in his work, as well as religious leaders, reproductions of artworks, prisoners and hospitals… He often combines several references and proposes a variety of metaphors on the functioning of power. The result is a colourful collection of crazy scenes that are filled with humour and pathos.
