The dynamic figurative art of Sergio Mooro

Contemporary figurative artist, Sergio Mooro has sensed the compelling urge to create from a very early age. Whilst for most early years learners creating starts and finishes with much fuss/mess and general unruliness, for Mooro the calling was more prosaic and considered. Although it did necessitate the defacing of his father’s Encyclopedia Britannica, whereby a young, free-spirited Mooro would while away the hours during his fifth year on this planet with meticulously detailed drawings; inspired by the vivid yellow paper special edition copy. Eventually seeing his etchings discovered (and punished accordingly at the time for his artistic endeavors) Mooro looks back on this instance fondly, insisting to this day that it stood at his first lesson re: vocabulary in art. Essentially; urge, followed by pleasure and pain.
