born 1964, Paraguayan

Pedro Barrail was born in 1964 in Asuncion, Paraguay. He worked and studied in Miami from 1983 until 1994 where he received his Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in Fine Arts, Architecture, and Urban and Town Design from the University of Miami. Barrail’s hand-crafted pieces evoke the traditions of South America as well as contemporary furniture design. His wooden furniture is sent to a remote Paraguayan village, where it receives authentic burned tattoos from a secluded tribe. The tattoos represent the visual language and narrative of the tribe’s history. Pedro’s collection includes breakfast tables, chairs, bar stools, coffee tables, mirrors, and objects. His pieces are part of private and public collections internationally, and have been referenced in publications such as Art and Auction, New York Times, Wallpaper Magazine, and Financial Times.

Barrail has represented Paraguay in several international exhibitions, fairs, and Biennales including the prestigious Biennale Di Venezia in 2013, where his work was part of the first official Paraguayan Pavilion.
