Pedro Lazaro's Biography

Born in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, in 1949, Pedro Lazaro attended the Fine Arts School of the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro. While studying there, Pedro was simultaneously teaching free style drawing at the Architecture School at the same university. In addition to studying and teaching, Pedro worked as an assistant to the artist and professor Lidyo Bandeira de Mello, with whom he painted 2 huge murals displayed permanently at the Federal Savings and Loan in Rio.

Pedro's creative journey began at a very early age when he first discovered his love of drawing. It was during his adolescence that Pedro entered the realm of landscapes, the human figure and oil painting. Following a move to Bahia's beaches that lasted several years, Pedro returned to Rio with a freer, more expressive art, which in turn led him to abstractionism.

About ten years ago, Pedro established himself in Miami, Florida, after having traveled through Europe and the United States. Presently, Pedro's art has a contemporary expressionistic character, with a thematic scope ranging from figurative to the abstract.

Since he was eighteen, Pedro has been exhibiting his art at numerous one-man exhibitions and group shows. His works include drawings, paintings, sculpture in stone, wood, marble and clay.
