About Arturo Laime
I’m a contemporary visual artist living in Frankfurt am Main, Germany. Having grown up in Lima Peru I have always been interested in ecology and nature conservation. I studied fine art at E. Sachs Visual Arts Institute in Lima. Then I directed Amazon Action; a social and environmental project in the Peruvian Amazon rainforest. There I discovered the importance of preserving hotspots of biodiversity. We received many visitors from around the world, empowering mothers and children from small villages, giving them medical attention and rehabilitating local wildlife. During this time I learned alternative painting techniques from the local painters of the forest.
In 2010 I worked on a series of sculptures for a large educational project: “Dinosaurs of Peru.” The traveling exhibition toured more than 6 cities and had millions of visitors, even being presented in History Channel. In 2013 I moved to Germany, where now I live and work. I exhibit regularly, and I have public and private collectors from North and South America, Europe and the Middle East. I sell my paintings worldwide on my Web, and I also teach alternative painting techniques and mixed media in Frankfurt. When I’m not in the studio you will find me at the gym, or walking around Fechenheim’s forests.
