Pablo Carpio (b. Madrid, 1979) currently lives and works in Madrid. He has lived for years in New York, where he developed part of his career, and in other cities such as Berlin, Buenos Aires and Mexico City.

His works have been exhibited nationally and internationally in spaces such as: New York Foundation for the Arts (New York, 2013), Deutsche Bank Americas Foundation (New York, 2013), Waterfall Mansion & Gallery (New York, 2014), the 3rd Edition of the Biennial o Visual Arts Areatec (Buenos Aires, 2014), Petit Palace Savoy Alfonso XII (Madrid, 2016), Estampa Art Fair, (2021), 80 Valdepeñas Visual Arts International Exhibition (2019), Deji Art Museum (Nanjing, China, 2021), Paul Smith Store & Gallery (London, 2022), Cerquone Gallery (Caracas, 2021 Madrid, 2019, 2022) or Palau de Casavells (Girona, 2022).
