Pablo Suárez

Pablo Suárez (Buenos Aires, 1937 - 2006) became active in informalist painting at the end of the 1950s. In 1961 he held his first individual exhibition at the Galería Lirolay, where he later presented the Muñecas Bravas series (1964).

From the mid-60s, Suárez formed part of a circle of artists who participated in the Instituto Di Tella, a group whose growing political radicalisation led them to give up artistic production in favour of social activism, after the censorship of the Experiencias 68 exhibition (ITDT, 1968).

In 1972, he returned to painting through still lifes and scenes of desolate settings. Between 1983 and 1985, with the series Adiós a Mataderos, his work veered towards free and expressionist painting with grotesque irony. By the end of the decade he had completed the Los Trepadores series.

In the 1990s he taught at the Taller de Barracas of the Fundación Antorchas, together with Luis F. Benedit. Among other exhibitions, Suarez formed part of the Argentine submission for the São Paulo Biennial in 1981 and 1985. He also took part in the Mercosur Biennial (1994, Porto Alegre). In 1999 he won the First Acquisition Prize of the Fundacion Eduardo F. Costantini, MALBA and in 2002 he won the Platinum Konex award.
