Read about Santos Arzu
Santos Arzu is a self-taught artist who possesses a very expressive abstract style. He turned to abstraction early in his career because it better conveys the emotions and themes present in his artistic practice. Arzu renews his artwork by constantly varying his color palette. He has delivered large-format works that consist of blacks and whites, and recently, has worked small round format canvases which he saturates with vibrant hues. Many concepts work as inspiration for Arzu’s art, however, human relationships, especially that of family, have been of high importance in his life and artwork. Named one of the most productive artists in the Central American region by Forbes Magazine in January of 2018. He has represented Honduras in various international Biennales such as the first three editions of the Central American Isthmus Biennale (1998, 2000, 2002), the 4Bth Venice Biennale (1999), and Iberoamerican Biennale in Lima, Perú (1997) to name a few.
