Self-taught artist born in Tossa (Girona), in 1945. His career as a painter started in 1967, by participating in competitions and showcasing his work in various Spanish cities. In 1976 he enrolls in an engraving course in Paris, where he lives for 2 years. In 1980, he travels to Carrara and starts sculpting in marble. In 2004, he incoporates the methacrylate as one of his main materials, which he considers to be very suitable for capturing his new ideas. For the past 2 years, he has been working with the theme of "freedom" (both physical and spiritual) in mind.
Kel Domènech (1971) starts his vocational training in the world of cabinet-making and restoring. Since the 1980s he has worked in both, private work and restoring chattels belonging to public institutions from the 17th, 18th, 19th and 20th centuries. Twenty-five years later he applies all his constructing experience, his profound knowledge of materials, techniques and the theoretical background from his beginnings to develop unlimited creativity. His work explores colour, textures and periods, thinking over the past, the future, technique, art and theory, reflected on some eclectic pieces in the purest sense of the word “eclectic”.
