about Dario Basso

Caracas (Venezuela), 1966

In 1988 the painter Dario Basso obtained a scholarship to reside at the Cité Internationale des Arts in Paris. In the French capital, he realizes an increasingly dense and corporal painting, worked over the support. The references to the Islamic world and the respect for the shape and texture of the fabrics infers a mysterious sense to the images of his Parisian era. Due to its nomadic condition, always reflected in his work, exotic aspects are mixed, as a result of his travels through Senegal, North Africa, India or South America, with the westernizing reflection of his stays in New York, Paris, Pissignano or Rome.

Dario Álvarez Basso explains it as "a vital nomadism, in search of myths and stories foreign to the Western gaze, it is to build your own mythical history, not the one that corresponds to you by origin". Today he exhibits individually and collectively both nationally and internationally.

about the artist's works

Darío Basso's work is eclosion of life and observation of nature, traces almost fossilized on the canvas and paper permeate much of his production. Leaves or flowers attached to supports, organic, aromatic and tangible elements build their own personal vocabulary. Basso uses colour to support matter and form, using paint with tear and momentum. He is one of the most outstanding creators of his generation, far from descriptive or illustrative attitudes, taking advantage of his plastic resources impregnated with vitality and coherence in his extensive production.
