Oscar Machado

Biography from the Archives of askART

Born in Caracas, Oscar Machado pursued studies in textile design and Fine Arts in Milan in 1972 and 1973. Upon his return to Venezuela, he worked at the Francisco Narváez Studio, where he learned to carve in stone.

 Later he traveled to Kansas City and Montreal, where he pursued degrees in Art and Theater Lighting respectively.

Machado's sculptures are made including elements of architectural composition and he presents assembled and organized fragments, which the artist sometimes refers to as 'anti-sculptures', but which regain their sculptural qualities thanks to his arrangements. Machado has been honored with several awards and solo shows in Venezuela as well as Colombia and the United States.
