Born in 1960 in Spain and died in 2009.

Urban spaces and the role of mankind in today’s society are some of the main concerns in the body of work of multimedia artist Chema Alvargonzález. His interventions in public spaces revealed the gap between the individual’s lives and city dweller’s life where everything happens. These multiple realities and the conflicts that result from their connection cannot be dissociated from the process of permanent destruction and construction that characterizes urban architectures. “I work principally in a dialogue between light, language (words), forms and urban elements. I try to arrange the forms in such a way that they create a dialogue with the architecture that surrounds them, and at the same time a dialogue with the viewer who is looking at them,” explained the artist.
