Born in 1954, in a small village of Maceira in Lalín, Antón Lamazares is one of the main references of his generation. He started writing poetry in the 70’s, a genre that left a deep mark on him but that he abandoned after a long journey throughout Europe, where he discovered the  work of  some of the greatest painters of the XIX and XX centuries, like Vincent Van Gogh, Paul Klee and Joan Miró.
His artistic proposal stands out for paying a careful and meditated attention to those matters forgotten by our contemporary culture based on constant innovation and compulsive speed. Therefore issues like memory, the importancy of humble things, the passage of time or the value of contemplative look have become the basis of his work in which cardboard and varnish are the most prominent materials.
The documentary film Horizon without Borders by Nayra and Javier Sanz Fuentes, deals with all these matters with Antón Lamazares. While preparing an exhibition in Budapest with some of his most important paintings –now exhibited at Play-Doc- Lamazares starts a journey without destination reflecting on some of the crucial problems of our time with some of his friends and relatives.
