Bio

Jordi González was born in Barcelona in 1975. He studied Arts and Humanities: Design, Cinema and Philosophy (MA, PhD) in Barcelona, Warsaw and Cracow. As an artist, he has worked in a multidisciplinary way and has exhibited in more than a dozen times, both in Catalonia and abroad.

Since the beginning of his career, in the 90s, he has been linked to various graphic techniques such as woodcut in a free and unconventional way, by adding to the prints a hand finishing (drawing or painting) having as a result single originals. The most common leitmotiv on paper is the human body, deconstructing and analysing it, mixing scientific inspired images with metaphysic issues.

Since 2015, however, he has opted for more anthropological and metaphysical work with respectful installations, sculptures and interventions of land art. He wants to focus on the ancestral relationship we have with nature, establishing a dialogue with the environment and the culture. A constant of his work is the wabi-sabi aesthetic, because he uses decayed or aged materials with an imperfect finish. This is due to the oriental influences, especially from Japan, that’s why he is an occasional sumi-e painter and practitioner of zen meditation for more than a decade.

He has taught at different universities in Barcelona and has carried out numerous workshops with young people and children. In addition, he regularly writes essays and poetry.

He currently lives in Masnou.
