RAFA MUNARRIZ DOWNLOAD PORTFOLIO DOWNLOAD CV DOWNLOAD TEXTS
Munárriz's artistic practice arises from the understanding and questioning of urban space. He is interested in the succession of confrontations that stand between the citizen and his environment, seeking to question the relationships between the creation and artificial denial of space. Understanding as artificial that which is projected. Analyzing it against the fortuitous in the construction and deconstruction of urban space.
With a visibly spatial and sculptural practice, his interest lies in the relationship that the viewer generates between the artistic work and his own reality as a citizen, that is, he tries to interfere in the relationship that he may have with his own spatial environment through of the interpretation of the diverse elements that compose it.
