Francisco Olivares Díaz (FOD), studied Fine Arts at the University of Granada and currently resides in Madrid, Paris and Rome. His work explores the relationship between space, support and color, analyzing the principles of Bauhaus aesthetics, evolving from essential references in construction - destruction, such as Gordon Matta Clark or Imi Knoebel. Build a lack of architecture, designing spaces that make us reflect on the "city", a city with spaces for urban renewal. In this painting deconstruction game, he articulates and defines places as cartographer of the suburbs and inhabited spaces. His works show an aspect consistent with the evolution of a geometric line that begins in Mondrian and passes Palazuelo or Peter Halley. From these sources, the matter occupies more and more space, both in painting and sculpture, and from memory, which serves as the genesis of his work, investigates new forms for a work in which architecture, memory and transience are protagonists going beyond visual aesthetics and pure materiality.

 

His work has been exhibited in galleries worldwide such as T20, Madrid; Ybakatu, Brazil and STRÛTS, Madrid. It is also part of collections such as the Banco de España Collection, the Ministry of Culture of Spain, Explum Contemporary Art and the Saastamoinen Foundation Art Collection, Helsinki, Finland.
