ABOUT THE ARTIST | ORIGINAL ARTWORKS

Sculptor born and based in Barcelona (Spain).

Degree in Fine Arts (University of Barcelona) with ERASMUS scholarship in R.U.F.A (Rome University of Fine Arts).

"I make contemporary figurative sculpture, the works I produce are endowed with a social and sometimes political charge that is reflected in the theme, formalization, and message of my works.

"What we produce is related to what we live. When I sculpt, model, carve or express myself in many different ways, my ideas are linked to a thought, experiences, and a way of expressing myself that through sculpture, I try to make the viewer see."

"Most of the time it is not about what is portrayed in itself, but about the why, when, how, and where. Art in the 21st century is fortunate to be endowed with absolute freedom where there are no borders. Art doesn't have to be pretty, elegant, or decorative. Art can be invasive, gloomy, vulgar, revolutionary, and critical. In fact, it must be all those things to adapt to a temporary environment that cries out for it."

"My works are projected to give voice, make visible, reflect, and break Mujer de la Pastilla - De Mendoza Sculpturewith the schemes of classical figurative sculpture."

INTERVIEWING THE ARTIST

Can you describe who you are as an artist and your journey so far?

"I am a quite enterprising artist, I want to devour ideas and reproduce them, the journey that I have taken so far is quite international and with diverse projects. For the moment, I am concentrating on the journey ahead while acquiring more knowledge and experience, I suppose it will be like this until the day I die."

 

What do you want people to see with your art?

"I intend to focus on a concept, an idea and everything that revolves around it, I try to create a moment of reflection when observing the work, a message that takes you to some corner of your memories or thoughts."

You have introduced "Luigi" to Her Majesty, Queen Sofia, have you tried to sell it to her?

"If I tried to sell it to her? Hahaha I don't deny that that might have crossed my mind, for now I have it for sale and advertised until someone falls in love with it."

 

How would you define your voice as an artist?

"Young, active, restless, controversial, contemporary and nostalgic."

 

Your work as a sculptor makes you develop pieces that have a certain timelessness on a cultural level. How do you relate this to the current social context?

"I think that the figurative does not have to be classical, the formalization of each work is made up of quite current features and the themes that I develop as well. I always put expressiveness before academic, while doing a well-executed job."

 

You have chosen Doctors of the World to help with the sale of your works, what led you to think about this NGO?

"Due to the current COVID situation that we are experiencing, I think it is essential to help stabilize the health situation so that once it is back on its normal course, humanity's efforts can be aimed at other development goals."

 

What do you think of the art2act® project?

I am very satisfied, the art2act project is very well managed and focused to give visibility to culture, it is important that there are platforms like yours to expand the art market and therefore expand people's culture. Culture contributes and lasts longer than anything else. It is what makes us who we are.
