Welcome to the gallery of contemporary Uruguayan artist Mauricio Paz Viola.

In this space you will find surrealistic and abstract art, in different techniques, oils, watercolors, inks, charcoal, pastel, collage, and mixed techniques

  Let us take upon ourselves

a new journey, through

wondrous worlds of which

we were once a part, a particle

Let yourself become a stream

and flow

into the realms of dreams where

the forces and energy

of the Universe, glow.

Creativity and art are about sharing with the audience and inviting them to create new shapes and worlds within themselves…

I consider each of my work to be a mirror that reflects the viewer’s inner worlds and memories of other realms, inhabited in other dimensions or times… a mirror that reveals a sphere beyond what is real, tangible, and logical and frees the viewer to create and re-create new images and shapes according to their own feelings, or their imaginations of other worlds and dimensions where they once existed as a particle of cosmic dust that captures and expresses sensations and moods with shapes, colors, light, energy and vibrations when one lays their eyes on a painting of mine.

Surreal portraits, pastel on paper, digital images, digital art, woman portrait, man portrait, rose painting.


 “Sometimes artists choose the less traveled path, plunging themselves into worlds of magic and novelty and creating a dreamlike, unique dialogue to explore alternative ways of artistic expression, with complete freedom of the human mind, freedom to dreams and weave fantasies out of a pure, authentic emotional intuition without limiting archetypes nor structures judging their actions….



“Artists of untrodden paths are honest beings who seek, above all, for art to be an expression of their innermost selves.”
