Poty Lazzarotto

Napoleon Potyguera Lazzarotto, known simply as Poty (Curitiba, March 29, 1924 - Curitiba, May 8, 1998) was Curitiba's most known artist.

The governor of Paraná, Manoel Ribas, awarded Poty in 1942 with a scholarship at the National School of Fine Arts in Rio de Janeiro. In 1946 he received from the French government, a scholarship, and in France he learned lithography.

According to some critics, the murals are the most representative pieces of his work. In its implementation, Poty employed various materials such as wood, glass (stained glass), ceramics, tile and concrete. His art can be seen in many public places in Curitiba, as the panels of the porch of the Teatro Guaira, in the lobby of Afonso Pena Airport, building murals at Largo da Ordem (as seen in the pictures above) and many other places all over Curitiba.

  2. Hi Paulo!
    Thank you very much for your kindness. You are right, Curitiba is a special city in Brazil. I have taken a quick look at your blog. Amazing pictures. Your blog emanates history. If not for your blog, I could never imagine that Ilha da Madeira would have such an interesting city like Funchal.
