Mauricio Sbarbaro was born in Montevideo (Uruguay) on January 26, 1960. He began studying architecture at the faculty of Montevideo and at the same time trained with the painter Miguel Ángel Pareja (1982), who taught him composition from color.

From 1986 he obtained numerous prizes and awards in Montevideo.
In 1993 he came to Europe but only stayed in Madrid for a year to settle permanently in Cadaqués, in the north of Catalonia. It is indeed on the shores of the Mediterranean that Mauricio Sbarbaro, who has sailed since his earliest childhood and who speaks of the sea as the only homeland, then paints the light and the Costa Brava. Sbarbaro likes to refer to artists of universal and Catalan painting such as Torres Garcia, Miro and Tàpies.

From 1996 his original approach led him to the abstraction of lines, plans and colors which capture the essence of the seascape. For more than 20 years, he has offered a very personal vision of the Mediterranean Sea on all media (large and medium format canvases, paper collages, wooden frames, iron sculptures, murals). He has participated in more than 50 group exhibitions and around 20 personal exhibitions (Uruguay, Spain, France, Germany, United States, United Kingdom, Belgium). Represented by several galleries (Montevideo, Barcelona, Brussels, London), Sbarbaro is particularly appreciated by Catalan, French, Belgian and Dutch collectors and amateurs who follow him in his studio in Cadaqués.
