Lautaro Saavedra Oliver
Lautaro lives and works in Barcelona (Spain) as well as in Pietrasanta (Italy). As a sculptor, he favours noble materials such as marble and bronze. He has mastered the ancient technique of lost-wax casting, with which he creates exclusive, unrepeatable artworks. Lautaro keeps no moulds for the reproduction of his pieces in order to ensure the uniqueness of each of his creations.
His symbolic universe is reminiscent of Greek and Egyptian art while giving a breath of life to the vanguards of the twenty-first century. Perfecting detailed anatomical rendering, Lautaro combines the forms of a human body with animal heads in a style that features unusual shapes and texture. His hybrid anthropomorphic beings represent the tragic, hilarious, and ironical sides of life. Each sculpture embodies the temperament of Lautaro, and his nature balancing passion, impulse, and reflection.
