About the Author:
Patxi Xabier Lezama Perier He is part of the generation of Basque sculptors who were born and raised with the magic of mythology. The work of this artist from Las Encartaciones de Vizcaya in the context of mythological culture is that of the singular visionary sculptor that throbs amid stubborn Basque energy.
Endowed with a creative personality, it reminds us of our primitive origins. Fruit of personal maturity, he surrounds himself with pagan inspiration.
Sensitive to a nonconformist aesthetic trajectory and after taking part last January in the exhibition Migrations: «Ocean of Hearts» at La Spanish Benevolent Society Gallery (La Nacional) / New York, United States, he publishes the book on Basque mythology « The Basque mythological universe »focusing his works on fantastic stories, certifying myths, the Basque sculptor promulgates in his production a regulation of vitality, driven by the beliefs of the place where Zalla was born.
A town known above all for its mythology where superstitions in evil supernatural beings, sorcerers and witchcraft were widespread, thus the natives of Zalla are called by antonomasia «Brujos».
The primitive basic matrix vibrated in the most intimate entrails of this artist who has been trying to make Basque mythology known for many years, transmitting and solving, as well as providing a semblance to this type of imaginary subversive underground world, assuming value systems that go beyond beyond the visual, from a historical and cultural perspective of an ancient mythology, a legacy of the past that passes on to future generations.
