Ferran Garcia Sevilla

Mallorca, 1949

Lives and works in Barcelona



The beginning of his artistic career is located in the context of the most provocative and non-conformist Catalan conceptual art scene. From 1978 he develops painting work of primitive and abstract character where Miró’s influence can be appreciated, in his automatism and the use of floating signs and/or objects on flat surfaces.


The evolution of his work has taken him to incorporate diverse elements and languages from diverse cultures, acting as a collector of images, often extracted from his travels around the Middle East.


In the last works of Garcia Sevilla, a major synthesis and a major economy of his pictorial language is made clear, being translated in the recurring use of a reduced number of signs that occupy and create the space in the paintings.
