TOÑO BARREIRO

PAINTING & SCULPTURE

B. 1965 SPAIN

The questioning of the limits of pictorial medium, using sculptural elements and the rupture of the traditional frame of Painting, is a constant in my work.

For more than two decades, Toño has been developing cross-disciplinary work that alternates between photography, painting, sculpture and digital processes. The questioning of the limits of pictorial medium, using sculptural elements and the rupture of the traditional frame of Painting, is a constant in his work. In its origin, Toño believes we find the articulation of the line and the plane playing with the concepts of deconstruction, symbiosis, the reference to the most elementary biological processes, overlapping color fields or the folding of the surface.  When not creating art, Toño is a Professor of Painting at the Polytechnic University of Valencia.
