He began to draw very young, at the age-child, self-taught. At the age of fourteen he began to attend the Institute of Design "Ricardo Rojas” in Buenos Aires, until the age of eighteen. He moved in 1999 to the United States, in Miami, and here is the crucial meeting for its formation, with the painter Abdon Romero, a Venezuelan painter, director of the Academy of Fine Arts in Maracaibo. In the atelier of Romero, directed together with the painter Sonia Hidalgo, Pablo Simunovic continues his artistic journey, practicing with the practice of drawing, and gains a clear and sure sign in the realization of the shapes and volumes. Currently Pablo lives and works between Florence and Pietrasanta, from painting he approached sculpture by working different materials from marble to bronze, his passion for sculpture often leads him to Pietrasanta, a privileged place for sculptors where he finds inspiration, materials and foundries to create his works of art.
