Dario Basso  (Spanish, 1966) 

whitespace
Darío Alvarez Basso (Spanish/Venezuelan b.1966) was born in Caracas, Venezuela and moved to Spain shortly afterward. Basso is known for his use of paint, applied by hand, to create works that portray different aspects of the human condition. In the 1980s, he immigrated to Madrid, a city that would shape the trajectory of his artistic career. After a few years at the Talleres de Arte Actual, he became more and more integrated into the artistic community in Madrid, and decided to dedicate his life to the pursuit of art. During the late 1980s, Basso began traveling to countries all over the world, from India and Egypt to Italy and South America, and became influenced by the different cultures he came into contact with. Nature, travel, and history are all important and recurring themes in his work. Basso has said that he seeks out cultural myths outside of Western tradition to portray in his work in order to challenge traditional ways of looking at art. In 2008, Basso held an exhibition at the Egyptian Museum entitled Algoritmi Dixit, which featured paintings of geometric figures in tribute to the fusion of Arabic and European cultures in 13th century Spain. That same year, his paintings won first prize in contests held in Barcelona and Valdepeñas, Spain. Basso lives and works in Madrid, Spain.
