Sebi Subirós, engraver since 1986 As an engraver, my work oscilates between discipline, painting and visual poetry. The main theme of my creations is the "found object", I get very close to images, often times antique engravings, and also to objects that I find interesting and which I transform in order to give them a different meaning from their original one. I am interested in warm and closesupports, such as paper and wood, and forthe final result I always try to achieve a feeling of permanence, I want the work to transmit the feeling that it has always been there, in a stage in between its first creator and my alteration.

A kind of glass that adapts to the necessities of an open project.
