$950

About

Colorful embossed etching by Arthur Luiz Piza, entitled "Moitie du Soleil" (half of the sun) signed by the artist and numbered 45/60. In the back of the piece, it wrote: "A.L Piza original etching "Moitie du Soleil". Piza was born in San Paulo, Brazil, in 1928. At a very young age, he began his studies in art as a student of Antonio Gomide. He settled in post-war Paris in 1951, in quartier Montparnasse. Piza regularly attended Friedlander’s engraving workshop, developing his techniques in copper engraving, etching and intaglio. From the time of his arrival in France, the artist participated in a large number of group exhibitions, both in his host country and abroad (San Paulo Biennale, the Biennale of Ljubljana, the Grenchen Print Biennale, Kassel Documenta, Salon des Réalités Nouvelles, etc.) and was the recipient of numerous first prizes. He also presented his work in solo exhibitions in Brazil and France; in the Galerie La Hune (Paris), he had a dozen shows between 1953 and 1991. From 1958 on, Piza devoted himself primarily to burin engraving and created reliefs and collages, as well as sculpted objects, porcelain and jewellery. He became known as one of the most compelling representatives of the art of engraving. His style is very personal: the plate is cut, gashed, gouged, hammered, sculpted in small, successive marks that, like scales, interlock and overlap; hollows become volumes. The artist died on May 26, 2017 in Paris, at the age of 89 years.
