This past weekend was the Russafart 2016 Festival! Thank you so much everyone who came to see us in Raquel Carrero´s studio and workshop!! Here are some photos of our space, and work of the other invited artists!!
I have been really busy recently with new work for Rusafart that will be held on the 27th-29th of May in Valencia!! Also a few wee comissioned pieces, and an upcoming exhibition in the Hamilton Gallery in Sligo, Ireland, and in Pasen y Vean in Valencia at the beginning of June! So many things going on!
Heres a few drawings of what you will be seeing in the next month in Rusafart Festival!
Will keep you posted with more new work soon!
Pleased to announce my next show which will be held in one of the coolest shops in Valencia, Sister Birkin!
This Thursday from 19:00 come along to the opening and enjoy a beer from our own local craft beer company “TYRIS”, or a wee glass of wine. Aswell as original art work, there will also be available cards and signed prints of the new work.
Hope to see you there.
This year is going so fast, there is barely time to keep up with everything!!
I have been working away in my new home studio, which is tiny, but perfect for me!
I am in 2 shows at the minute, they both are to celebrate, “Woman’s Day”, on the 8th of March, and they run till the 26th of March!
I am looking forward to a new show that will be held in one of my favorate shop in Valencia, Sister Birkin!! I will tell you more about that next week.
Till then, I will leave you with the invites, and the opening nights…
This work was produced over my one month residency in Berlin, at the Institute Für Alles Mögliche this summer.
During my stay I felt drawn to people and the way they can be judged in many ways, for example; by the manner in which they dress, or the posture they make. I started by collecting imagery from around Berlin, to make this series “Ich Bin”.
The blank faces give the viewer a sense of ghostly, anonymous figures; with only their clothes to give them some identity.
By using blank old pages with this series, the viewer is not drawn away by any words that may be written, and solely have the person in front of them to tell you their story!
I am delighted to be showing along side my father again in our 2 man show in the Hamilton Gallery, Sligo! The opening is on Thursday 3rd of September, please come along!

Mr. Yeats and Us
From Sep 3rd, 2015 To Sep 26th, 2015
Mr Yeats and Us
We both admire the work of W.B. Yeats, his use of language, his eloquence and the imagery in his poems. While one should not underestimate the importance of this imagery, however, and the many ways that one might use or respond to it, we have both found ourselves intrigued by other aspects of the man; his relationship with his family, his more esoteric pursuits and his extraordinary interest in spiritualism and the occult. We are also curious as to how, given his nationalist inclination, he rationalised his romantic, ‘Celtic Twilight’ view of Ireland with the reality of the country at that time. We hope that we can tease out an alternative dimension to the life of Mr Yeats, thereby complementing the more traditional view.
If you are in or around Berlin this Thursday 23rd of July, from 19:00, you are very welcome to check out the new work I have been working on in my art residency with Institut für Alles Mögliche the gallery/bar LOKAL_maifoto .
Prints of previous work will also be there for sale!
I will be showing along side my good friend and artist Jordi Bisquert Mascarell, and my favorate DJ will be playing at the opening too…. Jorge Depanachi aka 1 fat DJ!!!
Hope to see you there!

Last week there has been a lot going on!! The opening of “Pinceladas Colecivas” had a big opening on Thursday, 148 artists have contributed to this great idea! Every artist gets the same shape, a human outline made of wood, and are asked to do whatever they want with it!! This is my piece, and the invitation to the show. It´s on till the 11th of September, so plenty of time to see it!
