The Never-ending Newness of Pablo Saborío

Stretching canvas to its limits was never enough for this Costa Rican, Copenhagen-based artist, who continues to create not only new forms but languages within painting.

In a transcendental arc of artworks, Pablo Saborío builds a path under his own feet, finding new tools for expression in one innovative medium after the next.

Eyes to the right – actually when you cast your eyes over it, they are all over the piece.

Saborío began painting following a dream in which he was asked to paint a skull. Upon waking up, he bought paints, and did so. (Painting below)
