Paco Contreras


Painting titled The Shadow, it was done in Funchal, Madeira Island during my stay there on the occasion of the Erasmus scholarship

My work is within the framework of art practices where public spaces act as a meeting point between art and the viewer.

It can be said that there are two directions in my work: on the one hand, there is the relationship between human being and the surrounding environment, paying special attention to our relationship with nature; and on the other hand, there is the communication exchange generated by advertising media.

I am mainly interested in the relationship established between advertising and consumers. I use the same resources as the companies use to communicate their message trough advertisement.

My aim is to benefit from the synergy generated by media and tell different things, reflecting on some aspects of life that are somehow meaningful to me.

Thank you for coming.
