Artist Profile

ALEJANDRO
BOTUBOL

Born 1979, Spain

Alejandro Botubol reflects on his recent works and further develops the theme of artists who address the subject of light. The duality between natural and artificial light.The light of his childhood home, and the light of Light Art.

Throughout his foray into the United States during various New York residencies in 2013, Botubol studied the work of Georgia O´Keefe, Mark Rothko and Edward Hopper with a keen eye. (20th century). He was also influenced by the freshness and depth of works by contemporary North American artists such as Richard Tuttle Dan Flavin and Matt Connors… their use of colour, their concept of artworks and space, and the use of new media to display paintings.

These last artists led Botubol to the discovery of James Turrell, a true maestro of colour, towards the end of his stay in New York, he attended a huge retrospective of Turrell´s work at the Guggenheim Museum in the same city.

Botubol has a degree in Fine Arts (Seville, Spain 2007) and a Master´s degree in “idea y Producción” (Concept and creation) (University of Seville, 2013). He spent 2013 in New York, where he developed an ambitious art project during various artistic residencies: Residency Unlimited (RU) Brooklyn, International studio & curatorial program (iscp) Brooklyn, New York; Flux Factory Long Island City, New York. His work has been exhibited in museums, galleries and international institutions: Spain, Portugal, Switzerland, Finland, Mexico, Peru, Ecuador, Argentina, Colombia and the United States. He currently lives and works in Madrid.
