Roberto Pachado (Lima 1959) settles in Barcelona, Spain (1982) where he opens his silk screen printing
workshop. Thanks to the great variety of colors and materials he works with, he's able to
develop different techniques. He achieves the kind of light and color he wants depending upon the surfaces he works with, smooth
His silk screens,whose creation strongly depends upon the technique, allow him a wide range of
possibilities to develop his own visions. This will lead him to the discovery of new meanings and
therefore the need of strongly expressing them in this serie of works inspired by Gaudí
The technique he develops in this serie of works is based on a photographic medium, which he
manipulates in two different ways, both using traditional methods but also computer softwares
First he obtains hand painted and/or photolithographic stencils and then he begins preparing the screens,
one by one, color by color, with a great amount of dedication and work. He finally achieves
creating these pieces of artwork, rich in forms, colors and textures.
His vision, in which gather years of experience working with screen prints, his interest for
the creative process, his knowledge and admiration for Gaudí, they all lead us to discover
the details of this great masterpiece.
