About Arturo Laime
I’m a Latin American Peruvian artist living in Frankfurt am Main. My work includes painting, mixed media and sculpture. I studied environmental sciences before opening a commercial art business and studying fine arts at E. Sachs Visual Arts Institute in Lima.
My work has been featured by many major media outlets including History Channel, Frankfurter Rundschau, El Comercio, Frankenpost and Fechenheimer Anzeiger.
After Art school I started Amazon Action; a jungle lodge and cultural association dedicated to environmental and social initiatives in the Peruvian Amazon rainforest. I directed and worked on projects like art workshops, training in education and health for Amazonian mothers, rehabilitation of local fauna and medical aid for small villages. During this time I learned alternative techniques from artists of the forest.
I worked in a series of large sculptures for the Peruvian Dinosaurs educational project. The tour exhibition visited 6 cities and had millions of visitors, and was featured on History Channel. Soon after that a flood on Amazon river destroyed the jungle lodge and forced me to close Amazon Action.
In 2013 I moved to Frankfurt am Main. I had several exhibitions both in America and Europe. My work explores the relationship and the delicate balance between man and nature.
