Walter Casaravilla studied at the School of the Applied Arts with renowned Artist
Anhelo Hernandez in Montevideo, Uruguay, his native country. In 1970 he moved
to New York realizing a long time dream.
In 1975 he showed for the first time at the Washington Square outdoor show in
the Village NY.-
Since 1989 he has shared a studio space along other artist at 14th Street Painters in NY
where he found his home and new inspirations for his art.
His work is described best by the French-Canadian critique of art Danielle LeGrain when she writes:
“WALTER CASARAVILLA plunges into the depth of reality, to the very heart of
expression-he aims, in plastic space, to recover the force of impact of an image. Walter
loves the structured, rooted order and rigor his compositions impose on places and
inanimate objects- wedding strength and equilibrium in a disturbing serenity”
His latest work is leading more to the abstract but his colors, his knife work, and
compositions makes it all distinctively his own.-
