Jose Pablo Arriaga
Art created by Basque artist Jose Pablo Arriaga might best be described as an expressive testimony, based on his personal experiences, adventures and interactions with the social and political world as well as with nature.
Raised in an artisan craftsman family manufacturing typical Basque wooden chests, Jose Pablo Arriaga has widened his artistic skills in Bilbao and continued his professional formation at the Edinburgh College of Art in Scotland.
While his art allows him to liberate and communicate what he feels inside, his other passions, such as traveling, sailing, and being in an intense and direct touch with his surrounding, cultures and nature, have sensitized his consciousness for the social, political and natural world and deeply influence his worldview. The captivating stories of his encounters and experiences finally find a very authentic and stirring way of expression in his meaningful artwork.
