Pablo de Laborde Lascaris Wins International Emerging Artist Award

Falmouth alumnus Pablo de Laborde Lascaris has won the prestigious International Emerging Artist Award (IEAA) for 2013.

An established sculptor at just 28, since graduating from BA(Hons) Fine Art in 2011, Pablo moved from coordinating the Breakfast graduate exhibition in London to winning an Artist’s Residency at Christ’s Hospital School in West Sussex, to obtaining a bursary with the Royal Society of British Sculptors.

His latest achievement, the IEAA, represents excellence in contemporary art and offers emerging artists valuable international exposure alongside exhibition opportunities. Since receiving the accolade Pablo has enjoyed exhibiting across the globe: from Dubai’s FN Designs gallery, to the Vue Privée gallery in Singapore and latterly joining the Galerie Gourvennec Ogor in Marseille as an Associate.

Pablo won the coveted IEAA for his Cube, made whilst studying at Falmouth. The mixed media piece composed of different woods, grains exposed, and filled with 100kg of sand, poses queries regarding the relationship between two materials in a piece suggestive of time, movement, and displacement.

A prolific sculptor, Pablo’s latest work is set to form a pivotal role in the Marseille-Provence European Capital of Culture 2013 celebrations, showing at the Swab Barcelona Art Fair between 3-6 October before informing a solo exhibition at the Galerie Gourvennec Ogor.

Didier Gourvennec Ogor, gallery owner and President of Marseille Expos explains, “Pablo will be exhibiting from 31 October at the Galerie Gourvennec Ogor in a solo exhibition. He will have the opportunity to invest in a space nearly 200m by 4.7m high. This is a difficult exercise for artists in general, but I am sure he will take advantage of this great opportunity… I am very excited by this new collaboration with such a promising artist.”
