maria pestana art gallery online intends to provide a commercial launch of the art works of selected international artists. Our intention is to promote young artists and less well known artists who have been chosen for their technical skills, personality or creative imagination. Also among our compromises is to present the artist to international competitions and prizes.

We offer to collectors personal consultancy services to assist them in developing their collections according to their special interests or in exploring new branches of contemporary art to begin collecting. In addition we firmly believe in promoting the excitement, pleasure and fascination of collecting art to a new generation of collectors and thus we offer advice and guidance all aspects of how to start, build and develop an art collection.


Damian Ibarguren (Urugay)


Damian Ibarguren points out where paradise lies. His paintings do not have the intention of changing the world as it is. Ibarguren is inspired by every moment which is full of intensity. Although his compositions are inhabited by personages they are within the painting to build up the emotion of the moment. His personages wear mask-like faces and they indicate to the viewer that they are actors of an important situation. What is relevant to the artist is to capture the emotion of a particular moment which first fixed in his retina. The emotive use of colour brings to mind the intention of the artist: to express the intensity of the moment.

Damian Ibarguren (Uruguay) has widely exhibited through different locations at Art Galleries in Ireland Republic, Sweden, Uruguay, Argentina, Spain and Venezuela.

“La mayoría de las cosas que hago, las hago a impulsos de inspiración. (…) Mis cuadros surgen en la mayoría de algún recuerdo, alguna charla, alguna anécdota, alguna foto. Algo que me queda sonando en la cabeza durante mucho tiempo y de repente PUM explota una imagen en mi mente y en ese momento me tengo que tirar contra el cartón y hacerlo, dibujarlo. Arranca el amor cuando pongo los primeros colores, creo las primeras imágenes...” (Damian Ibarguren, 2009)
