Elisa Pritzker presents a Virginia Lavado

His drawings are represented at the Museum of National Art in Caracas, The Granary, and private collections in Latin America and the United States, at the same time his work has been exhibited nationally and internationally. Virginia draws on paper with ink and pen. The technique is traditional however its theme is contemporary. His drawings evoke worlds where the imagination of the spectator is provoked to find answers to their own dilemmas about the existence and complexity of thinking when encountering alleys full of myths, stories where we find our roots no matter where we come from.
