Basque mythology

Patxi Xabier Lezama Perier was born in 1967 in Zalla, where he lived, studied and worked. A town known for its popular culture and especially for its mythology where superstitions were widespread in malignant supernatural beings, sorcerers and witchcraft. The primal basic matrix vibrated at the bottom of the most intimate entrails of the artist, beginning a long and extensive search in transmitting and solving, as well as providing semblance to this type of subversive imaginary underground world, assuming with more or less subtlety and rotundity, some systems of values that go beyond the visual, from a historical and cultural perspective that constantly searches in its roots the keys of its own identity in legends, deities and autochthonous myths that were shaping the Basque mythological universe.
