Pablo de Lillo


(Avilés, 1969)

Pablo de Lillo studied art at the Facultad de Bellas Artes de San Fernando in Madrid (1987/92). His selection for the Muestra Regional de Artes Plásticas de Asturias in 1993 (Viento del norte) together with his work as assistant to Sol Lewitt that same year (Wall drawing 727, Estrategias del sentido, Palacio de Revillagigedo, Gijón) mark the beginning of a career that has lasted more than 30 years. His participation in the Transfer Project (1999/2001) led him to exhibit in some of the most important art centres in northern Germany and Spain, such as the CGAC in Santiago de Compostela, the Sala Rekalde in Bilbao, the Stadtisches Museum in Leverkusen, the ScholoB Morsbroich, Zollverein and the Gesellschaft fur zeitgenossische Kunst in Essen. He was selected for the Bienal de Arte Ciudad de Oviedo in 1998 and has participated in fairs such as Arte Santander, Art Lisboa and Pareidolie Marseille.

In 2002, with ATM Galeria, he participated in Contemporary Spanish Expression: five artists from Gijón / The Alburquerque Museum of Art and History (USA). Since 2012 he has been working with the Gallery Grölle pass projects with offices in Wuppertal and Düsseldorf with which he has participated in various projects in Berlin, Marseille, Düsseldorf, Madrid and Wexford (Ireland).

He has solo exhibitions in the aforementioned German gallery (2013, 2015, 2017), as well as in national galleries such as Vértice (2004), Guillermina Caicoya (2010, 2012), Llamazares Galería (2016) and Arancha Osoro (2018).

In 2018, it took a qualitative leap forward with the transfer of its centre of operations to new premises in the centre of Oviedo, where it can integrate its teaching work of the last few years with new exhibition formats. Estudio Pablo de Lillo is a project space that deals with quality contemporary artistic production from the periphery without complexes. We work with a large group of local, national and international artists and curators, indifferent to the surrounding pessimism, generalised discouragement and voices of doom and gloom. We strive every day to create links, community and home around art.
