WE LOVE POT
Abel Iglesias, Inma Carpena, Lusesita, Rorro Berjano, Ruben Sanchez and Vitor Reis. 9 November – 5 December 2018 at Plastic Murs Gallery, Valencia.
Ceramics, contemporary art, design and urban culture.
The use of ceramics as a medium has historically been linked to artistic creation. Manual treatment of clay again attracts a big number of artists and creatives: design sneaks into artistic expression and works of art are often “designed” without forgetting an ancestral tradition. In that melting pot of contemporary artistic creation, artisan practice is renewed making research and development part of the process.
Abel Iglesias has managed to consolidate his work despite his young age, he started studying the superior degree of ceramics in Manises, the famous town of potters in Valencia. A multidisciplinary artist with his beginnings in the world of graffiti, whose vision of public space has led him to explore multiple forms of art based on abstraction, the ephemeral, the colors and the research in materials.
