Osvaldo Pitoé was born in Pedro P. Peña en 1967 and lives with his family in Cayin ó Clim. As a cartoonist, he is self-taught. Representations of human beings in action and scenes of collective life abound in his drawings. The preferred motifs of his works are based on his own experiences. His drawings are nourished by the memory of a childhood by the Pilcomayo River; they talk about his father, who took him hunting and fishing; and of his mother, who carped and reaped at the sowing. His drawings also refer to the task of women: collecting vegetable food in the mountains, looking for water and firewood. The graphic expresion of these moments of family and community life emphasizes the value and practice of sharing according to an indigenous ethic. In his paintings with acrylic stains on wood, the artist precisely defines the contours, thus emphasizing the figures depicted. Sometimes, he chooses earthy colors with integrated nuances, which refer to te natural dyes with which the bags of caraguata are adorned; sometimes plays with, contrasting and motley colors. In 1998 he won a contest promoted by the «Indigenous Crafts Project», promoted by the cultural promoter Verena Regehr and since then he has dedicated himself to this medium, using black ink pens on white paper.
