The work of this creative artist Zallarra in the context of mythological culture is the singular visionary sculptor who throbs among the obstinate Basque energy. The fruit of personal maturity is surrounded by pagan inspiration.

BIOGRAPHY
Patxi Xabier Lezama Perier is part of the generation of sculptors of the ancient rites of myth and Basque nature. Get a symbolic mythological world in a representative style that is capable of transforming the soul of the Basque land into a living work, love what we should love, admire what we should admire, acquire what we have lost and learn what many did not know before . Ways and fantasies of reflection so that popular expansions know where the game is heading by offering a sacred cup to trivialities. In the old Basque culture, there is a saying that says: "izena duen guztia omen da" translatable as "everything that has a name exists", a formula that justifies beliefs that were not very credible at that time, an existentialist axiom. Patxi Xabier Lezama Perier is part of the generation of Basque sculptors that was born and grew up with the magic of mythology. Against his extreme zeal to preserve his privacy, the sculptor was born in Zalla, a small town in the Enkarterri region. A place well known especially for its mythology, where superstitions in supernatural beings, sorcerers and witchcraft were widespread, so the natives are called "warlocks". The original basic matrix vibrated in the entrails of this artist who for more than half a century has been able to disseminate Basque mythology through sculpture, transmitting and resolving it, and giving an image of this subversive imaginary world, assuming some value systems. that go beyond the visual, from a historical and cultural perspective of an ancient mythology inherited from the past that is transmitted to future generations.
TECHNIQUE

Sculptor vitally representative of the symbolic and mythological, the effects and definitions of such a scenario for the specters of the gods here is the most varied framework for us to dream of its own reality, which treats and completes as a magical realism. Open and alive artistic experience in the channels of the experimental dimension, with autochthonous figures, myths and legends of the Basque Country. His sculpture, as a language of memory, is a luminous communication that contributes to give a characteristic and personal stamp, which makes it the search for his ancestors. The essence and the voluble image are combined with the mythological fables of a long sociological poem, aesthetically illuminating, to the echo of a narrative refectory. Religion for spirits. It must not have the purpose of the original for what it constructs, but rather it is moved by the duality of the communication of the form and content of the original roots. The nature of its origin is the transcendental situation of being and for it they seek encouragement, support and gratification that our sculptor here hastened to lend. In the task, in imagination and enlightenment, find the most accurate elements to enhance the forms and put them within reach, keeping faith and illusions alive.
