Art from around the world and around the corner



Born in Arequipa, Peru in 1958, Pantigozo studied at the "Escuela de Bellas Artes" in Arequipa and has had more the fifty solo and group exhibitions in Peru, Italy, the U. S. of America, Venezuela, Chile and Bolivia. These exhibitions include: "Luces y colores del Peru", Galeria Ada Negri, Milan, Italy (1990); "the Charlotte sister cities International Art Exhibition", Charlotte, NC (1990); La Puerta del Sol, La Paz, Bolivia (1990); "Noche de arte", U.S. Embassy, Lima, Peru (1990-80); J. Melberg Gallery, Charlotte, NC (1987); "Campo y cosecha", Galeria Trapecio, Lima, Peru (1986); "Raices peruanas en el arte contemporaneo", Casa de España, New York, NY (1984); and, "Homenaje al Libertador Simon Bolivar", Caracas, Venezuela. Most of his subjects emanate from the farm of his brother in Arequipa, where Pantigozo was born. His main interest is the relation of the man of the Andes with the "MAMAPACHA" or land. The spirituality of the paintings, on the other hand, originate in the dual culture (the western and the andean cultures) that the man of the Andes confronts. It is interesting to know that the wife, Zoila de los Santos, is also a painter investigating the relation man-water. The treatment of the media is similar but the content is absolutely different. Pantigozo shows potential as one of the most important Latin American painters from the present century and his message should be spread loud and clear.
