Gonzalo Pita

Self-taught artist Gonzalo Pita was born in Buenos Aires in 1967. He moved to New York in 2007 and has worked for the past 17 years in set design alongside his own creative endeavors. He began to work with impasto in 2008, experimenting and honing his technique to arrive at the series of landscape paintings - Paisaje - presented as a solo show at Hawk + Hive. His aesthetic is rooted in minimalism and abstraction, with an emphasis on richly textured surfaces and emotive use of color. 

"Inspiration from my life ranges from the time I lived in the Catamarca Mountains in Argentina, riding horses for days across verdant landscapes, to living in Brooklyn and finding beauty in the shapes of shipping containers dotted along the New York Bay, and now returning again to the natural world around our cabin in the Adirondack Mountains. In this series of paintings, my history and experiences intermingle and find themselves playing out across the canvas." 

Since 2020 Pita has divided his time between a 23 acre property in the Adirondacks where he has renovated a 1950’s cabin, and his studio in a 1920’s Finnish Co-Op building in Sunset Park, Brooklyn.
