_Javier Blanco. Barcelona, 1968

Fine Arts graduate from the University of Barcelona, specializing in Sculpture, 1995. Simultaneously he studied at the Glass Center of Barcelona, and thanks to a scholarship, also at Sheridan College of Art and Design in Toronto, Canada.

After being professor at the Glass Center of Barcelona, he set up his own studio at the very center of Barcelona in 1999.

Since his early work he develops the idea of the absolute present by requiring the action of the spectator, the artistic object is just a medium for the truly art, which occurs in between the object and the spectator.

In his recent work he delves into the idea of the present time not only through action but also through reflection, which requires a significative action in the spectator inner self.

“Artistic objects doesn’t exist, but artistic experiences and appropriate objects to provoke them.” Javier Blanco, INTERPRETACCION, 1999.
