About the artist
In the intimacy of his mental laboratory, Grip Face captures the latent images of his time and gives them form under the tutelage of the aesthetic education he has received; from illustra- tion to graphic design, through installation and painting, he works with the most graphic languages to the most conceptual ones and at the same time, for years he has been creating a bridge between the public space and the exhibition space. His first book `Black Faces’ is the materialization on paper of this bridge; the publication includes both furtive interventions and the pieces destined to be exhibited in the Bilbao SC Gallery, all of which are included in the same project.
The spaces he chooses in the metropolises, whether on the scorned edges of the suburbs or in the city centres, reproduce the remote links of the human being with Art. The passer-by comes face to face with icons that claim their attention and This is an iconic personal universe that seeks to induce the citizen to reflect and, perhaps, question him.
