Biography Arthur Luis Piza
Piza (1928-2017) was born in São Paulo, Brazil, where he began his
artistic training. He relocated to Paris in 1951, where he lived and
worked for most of his career. During his initial years in Paris, Piza
trained under the master printmaker Johnny Friedlaender, adapting his
style to the capabilities and demands of intaglio processes. Following
this instruction Piza began using thicker plates than was typical for
etchings in order to make deeper, gouged incisions, resulting in a
three-dimensional textural quality in his printed works (see lot 104).
He was awarded the National Engraving Prize early in his career, in
1959, for his innovations.
