IVAN PRIETO (ES)
Iván Prieto (ES) was born in Ourense, Spain, but now works and lives in Berlin. His work focuses primarily on ceramic sculptures, but Prieto also creates illustrations and installations.
In his colourful, surrealist sculptures, Prieto captures certain fragility of humans. This includes indications to physical disabilities such as deafness and blindness, as well as mental imperfections, with each character being inspired by real-life human counterparts.
Drawing on his personal experiences, Prieto wants to explore the transgressing of physical and mental borders in his art, which are relatable for everyone in some way.
In this way, the works also are a self-portrait of the artist.
