“Nothing in the Void” opens a new path into the inner worlds of artist Mauricio Paz Viola. His images, colors and pictorial narrations awake in us dormant worlds in ourselves. We find ourselves naked to the soul, without conventions nor preconceived notions to invoke, and hence forced to come up with our own responses to our ephemeral landscapes. futuristic landscapes and nothing in the void of the artist Mauricio Paz Viola, paintings in oil on canvas, acrylic on canvas.
In my understanding, there are three concurrent trends in New York that stand out from the rest - pop art, abstract art and street part. Based on this observation I decided that I would follow one of these to get into the flow of the City. In fact, I incorporated all three in one piece of artwork. In this series called Identity (Identity), inspired by the people and the diversity of New York, I wanted to capture this diversity, the statics, the glamor, the fashion, the ethnicities, the culture and the splendor of this magnificent city.
A few days ago, we announced our take-over and re-opening of ArtWorld.
We've had a great response, already adding over a dozen artists and an artist collective to our list of Contributing Editors. Facebook says that there is no limit to the number of people we can add in roles on our page! So we'd like to add hundreds of artists as Contributing Editors to share their art and art news.
In this group show, we’re continuing our tradition of exhibiting new work by artists we already love alongside surprising entries by artists who are entirely new to us.

There is a clear fractal element in my work. I think plastic artists can interpret in subconscious, yet clearer way that resorting to fractal or aesthetic art. Fractalism and aestheticism exist in nature and the universe, and you can see some reference to that in almost all of my pieces, especially in my abstract series “Nothing in the Void”. The Fibonacci sequence is alluded to in the series “Sublime Trees.”
please kick things off for us by telling us about yourself and your journey so far.
Many life situations inspire me – artists are a little different in the sense that we see differently. I was born in a small town on the shore of La Plata River with the most gorgeous sunsets in the world, carnival, Murgas, candombe, bohemian life, good wine and beautiful women.
