JOSEP MARIA SUBIRACHS I SITJAR
Inside Hotel Estela, the permanent collection of works by Josep Ma. Subirachs, is a truthful anthology exhibition that brings together one of the best collections in the world with sculptures, paintings, lithographs, etchings and drawings which are very representative of each stage in Subirachs' career.
Josep Puigmartí, the genius who lives and works in Hotel Estela Barcelona, is the artist with the most important presence. We can admire artworks belonging to different plastic stages from his works based on his erotic surrealism of the 70's to his current paintings created with automatic gestures.
Artist with a wide media and artistic dimension. A world-renowned sculptor by the poetical nature of his works. In his language, he resorts to the use of the hands to develop abstract concepts (trust, love, security...), making the transmission and understanding of his works easier to the viewer.
Born in Chile and based in Barcelona. Ricardo has been part of the artistic team of the art hotel for more than fifteen years. His artworks decorate a large number of rooms, corridors and lounges. His language shows a lyrical component with a solid basis of nearly photographic hyperrealism mixed with rusted surfaces oxidized by the inexorable passing of time.
