Pablo Gimenez Zapiola
Early on in life Pablo Gimenez-Zapiola developed a particular interest in art and aesthetics, which led him to experiment with diverse visual expression techniques to develop and express his ideas. He learned composition and the subtlety and richness of color through painting. Photography allowed him for BW darkroom experimentation and to capture reality in a variety of ways. Finally, architecture gave him the knowledge of function and the skills for assemblage and 3D visualization. After completing his degree in architecture, he gained some working experience that led him toward graphic design. This combination of backgrounds taught him to understand art as a way of enhancing meaning in life and at the same time provided him a broader spectrum of resources to draw from and greater freedom to create. His work has been exhibited in galleries in Argentina (Espacio Buenos Aires, Fundación Hampatu), and the US (Schneider Gallery - Chicago, LeHigh University Art Galleries - Pennsylvania, Sicardi Gallery, Spacetaker, Art Crawl, Project Row Houses, Bering & James, Diverse Works, Talento Bilingüe - Houston, ArtHouse - Austin), as well as featured on art and photography magazines and blogs, and is part of private collections in Argentina, UK and the US. Born in Argentina, he now lives and works as and artist through photography, video and animation, in Houston, TX.
