Ion Macareno

Birth placeBilbao Birth date1980

Macareno places the work produced in the studio as the centre of his practice. In this eminently practical work, a series of actions trigger new ones, and these, in turn, others. Therefore, in this – according to art’s own logic – intertwined link testimonies and artefacts appear, remnants of a process where the constant practice and technical exercise are fundamental pillars always destined to the experimentation and search for forms that may account for the aesthetical experience. Hence, a key principle emerges setting off artistic decisions that generate meaningful formal results.

Graduated in Fine Arts from the País Vasco University, since 2010 he develops an investigative activity inside its Sculpture Department. He has been awarded by BilbaoArte Foundation in 2011 and 2017, space in which he will show his work in a solo exhibition during 2018. He has participated in international fairs like ARCO Madrid 2017 and 2013, POPPOSITIONS 2016 (Bruxelles) and SWAB 2012 in Barcelona, among others.
