Lluís Estopinán

Graduated in Fine Arts from the "Escola Massana" in Barcelona at the end of the 80s, since then he has not stopped working in painting, artistic installations and photography (digital and in analog processes) that he has exhibited regularly in galleries, museums and centers of art from Spain, but also from other countries such as France, Germany, Japan, Italy, the United Kingdom, Portugal, Brazil, Argentina or Mexico.

He is interested in the possibility offered by the art of elaborating ideas and emotions at the same time. These are the "matters" that, beyond the technique used, he wants to shape his work because he is fascinated by the fact that ideas, concepts, conveyed through emotions can profoundly transform us.

The themes that have motivated his work refer to life as a space of possibilities, to our changing perception of the fact of life and also everything related to memory as an essential part of our identity (during his artistic residency at "Roca Umbert Fàbrica de les Arts” from Granollers) in series like “Disclosed Memory”, “Lost Memory”, “Hidden Memory”, “Undisclosed Memory” or “ReVers”.

Recently exhibited at the "Royal Photographic Society 159 International Print Exhibition" touring the United Kingdom, the Marya-Osaka and Shima City Galleries in Japan, the Barcelona Visions, Esther Montoriol and Valid Foto galleries in Barcelona, the November Fotos and Photopatagonia festivals in Argentina, the Joseph/Braque gallery in Paris, the Granollers Museum and the Abelló de Mollet Museum, the Espai G d'Art gallery in Terrassa, the Revela-T Festival in Vilassar de Dalt, the “FineArt Igualada” festival, the Centro Cultural in Terrassa, the Lucía Dueñas gallery in Oviedo, or the ART PHOTO BCN fairs in Barcelona or the Tbilisi Art Fair in Georgia.

They have also obtained recognition such as the special mention of the Jury at the "LensCulture Art Photography Awards 2019", "Portfolio Series Winner" at the "Barcelona International Photography Award", or finalists for the Contemporary Photography Award at the Fundació Vila-Casas in Barcelona.
