EVRU ZUSH

Barcelona, ​​1946.

Few artists can boast of having their own state, with their flag and even their stamps and paper money. That’s what happens with Zush-Evru and his peculiar Evrugo Mental State. Contemporary plastic artist of recognized prestige, he has developed part of his work in collaboration with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT).

Zush (from 1968 to 2001, pseudonym Alberto Porta) has followed an absolutely personal trajectory in which he commands, over any other concept, his will to represent a reality that he himself has conceptualized in Evrugo’s Mental State. Through images of more or less anthropomorphic figures, Zush has been describing throughout his work the inhabitants of Evrugo: beings halfway between psychedelia, comics and the magical-surrealist tradition of the Dau al Set movement. .

Zush, a character who has accompanied the artist since 1968, disappeared on February 23, 2001, during the TECURA exhibition at MACBA. This disappearance represents the end of an era and the birth of EVRU, defined as ARTCIENMIST, a sum of artist, scientist and mystic.

His work has been exhibited at the Guggenheim in New York and at the Pompidou Center in Paris and is present in the collections of these institutions, as well as in the main Spanish Museums and Foundations dedicated to Contemporary Art.
