Pablo Atchugarry
Pablo Atchugarry (b. 1954, Uruguay) is a sculptor noted for his marble work, including public pieces in several towns in Lombardy, Italy.

His father Pedro, student of the renowned Uruguayan artist Joaquín Torres García, recognized his skills and the interest he expressed and stimulated Pablo since childhood to emerge into the world of art. Although starting with painting, he soon discovered other materials such as cement, iron and wood.

It was in 1979, after various exhibitions in his hometown, Argentina, Brazil, as well as several major European cities that he discovered marble as a fascinating material, and made his first sculpture in Carrara marble entitled “Lumiere.”

Since 1989 his talent is also seen in monumental works that are now part of private and public collections in American and European spaces. He has received numerous awards throughout his expansive career, most notably including the Michelangelo award for a six foot tall, 33-ton sculpture in 2002. He has also opened ‘Foundation Pablo Atchugarry’, promoting the teaching and training of art.

His sculptural work has been exhibited in London, New York, Miami, Montevideo, Buenos Aires, Paris, Sao Paulo, Curitiba, Brasilia, Panama, New Orleans, San Francisco, Madrid, Cologne, Frankfurt, Maastricht, Amsterdam, Bruges, Brussels, Gand, Zurich, Basel, Abu Dhabi, Milan, Venezia, Torino, Stockholm and more.

He currently lives and works in the city of Lecco, Italy and Manantiales, Uruguay.
