Watch a video of Martin Carral

Spanish Artist (Meruelo, Cantabria, 1959)

Bachelor of Fine Arts, University of Barcelon.

Carral has exhibited both individually and collectively since 1986. Since then, he has received numerous awards and scholarships in recognition of his work and career, and his work can be seen in many prestigious collections. The concept that underlies all of Carral’s work is space, stressing its expressive potential on a domain of plastic-pictorial language.  This dimensioned space goes beyond the limit of the picture, and depicts a full universe of ever-changing, dynamic geometries which transport us to a boundless cosmic space.
