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 work explores the material possibilities of painting, to develop a language in abstract terms, that aims to take the physicality of the medium towards the questioning of its own limits. Guided by an expansive and intuitive use of gestural marks, Carpio develops a unique formal exploration, in a field of action, in which the boundaries between the two and three dimensions are blurred. Thus suggesting an indirect conversation with sculpture, and pushing the conventional notions of painting into new territories. The result reveals a powerful form of expression, intended to be experienced by the viewer.


He was a recipient of the  Artist Mentoring Program (IAP) of the New York Foundation for the Arts (2013). 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 by Alzueta Gallery (Girona, 2022). Recently shortlisted for the 36th edition of the BMW Painting Award. His works can be found in private collections and institutions internationally.
