Pep Fajardo

Barcelona, 1961.

His work began being linked to the found object. Over time he has completed a formal and conceptual sculptural purification in the search for the poetic object. Also, apart from sculpture, he has made engraving, drawing, photography and pictorial work, this also including various materials such as iron and wood, thus forming a circle fed back with his sculptural work.

He usually uses wood, iron, fabric, paper, steel cables, threads, ropes, glass, lead, aluminum, photography, optical lenses, light... thus creating material counterpoints that he unites through assembly to reach the object unity he seeks.
