Arhtur Luis Piza was born in Brazil but spent most of his artistic career in Paris. He is known for his mixed media works and etchings, both of which feature highly textured details dealing with abstract notions of dimension, perception, and space. Piza trained under master printmaker Johnny Friedlaender in Paris and adapted his teachings into his own bold etching process exaggerating the thickness of the ink and the deepness of the plate lines. He exhibited at the São Paulo Bienal in 1951 and his works are housed in the collections of the Museum of Modern Art, the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York, and the Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris.
