Steel and Tile Chiaroscuro Chairs by Pedro Barrail


Pedro Barrail's chiaroscuro chairs were created in 2014 as part of his first solo exhibition at Cristina Grajales gallery titled welcome to the jungle. The chairs, which are made of steel tubes and porcelain tiles with photo-collage impressions, can be sold as a pair or separately. Pedro Barrail was born in 1964 in Asuncion, Paraguay. He worked and studied in Miami from 1983 until 1994 where he received his bachelor’s and master’s degrees in fine arts, architecture, and urban and town design from the university of Miami. Barrail's handcrafted pieces evoke the traditions of South America as well as contemporary furniture design. Pedro's collection includes breakfast tables, chairs, bar stools, coffee tables, mirrors, and objects. His pieces are part of private and public collections internationally, and have been referenced in publications such as art and auction, New York times, wallpaper magazine, and financial times. Barrail has represented Paraguay in several international exhibitions, fairs, and Biennales including the prestigious Biennale Di Venezia in 2013, where his work was part of the first official Paraguayan Pavilion.
