Luís Gálvez Urbano. “El Borni”.
Lluís is a self-taught artist from Sant Andreu Salou, a small village close to Girona, where peace and wellness shares the born of interesting artists.
He learns from Ció Abellí how to work with clay as a moldable material and discovers its infinite possibilities.
The most remarkable aspect from Lluís is his interest in giving life to his works, another point of view of the elements that compose them. He is a constant observer of the surrounding environment, This is why his sculptures are capriciously made with elements that come from recycling. Metal, stone, wood which are recovering from such unique places as trails in the countryside, on buildings in ruins, on the mediterranean seabed…founding anywhere fragments, pieces, that can integrate into his sculptures.
He exhibited in various galleries and art fairs from such important spanish cities as Girona, Barcelona, Cordoba, Madrid, Vigo Bilbao and internationally Argentina and France a few years ago as well.
