Jesús Palomino


Seville, Spain. 1969.

This Sevillian artist holds a degree in Fine Arts from the University of Castilla-La Mancha, Faculty of Cuenca (Spain). His work is an invitation to reflection, to the awareness of citizens in the demand for rights and freedoms.

In his early works, the work of Jesús Palomino was articulated on two axes: drawing and collage, with the use of simple everyday materials: small fragments of paper, pieces of cloth or plastic of bright colors and any other humble material close to his domestic reality. But his works have also been linked, from the beginning, to architectural spaces.

In recent years he has dedicated himself, basically, to the production of site-specific installations, working with the identity of the place, always with aesthetic interests related to the places, spaces, locations and communities where he has carried out artistic residencies; therefore, inevitably, many of these projects have been taking a gradually more social orientation, and deal with issues such as human rights, ecology, cultural dialogue or democratic criticism.

His works have been presented at international art fairs in Cologne, Berlin, Madrid and Basel. His works are part of important public collections and museums such as: Helga de Alvear Collection, Madrid, Banco de España, Madrid, Caja de Burgos, Burgos, Universidad Castilla La Mancha, Centro Andaluz de Arte Contemporáneo, Sevilla, and Testimoni Collection, La Caixa, Barcelona.
