This Friday sees the opening of contemporary exhibition “Virutas” (Chips) by the works of illustrator and painter Gabriel Pérez Raventós,  showcasing pieces that evolved organically by mixing wood and unusual materials. As a former carpenter, the texture, form and nature of a material is key to Raventos work, as he finds different and creative ways to mould them into works of art. There are no preconceived ideas, great plan or agenda.

His very on lifestyle is a testament to his art, with him not conforming to a conventional way of living and opting for ´alternative strategies to live, based in a limited participation in the conventional economy and a minimum consumption of resources´. Wood is sourced from the street, materials like bank papers, invoices, stamps etc are all found are given, used as a foundation for his projects. Virutas, is an exhibition that transmits the mood of the artist and shows great creative expression. You won’t look at a wooden pallet the same again!  On from 26 September until 11 November.
