I chose to represent, speak of those images that move me and I will continue. Continuing the discovery of light reveals things and desires... I like beaches, fresh fruit and people dancing in Casamance. It’s great when I can catch the light and beauty of the Caribbean, Africa and Menorca in a painting. Everything you see and experience does my imagination. That’s why I like traveling and painting wherever I go, because I believe everything I see or experience is interesting enough to talk, and my tongue, I know now, is the color.
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.
Nuri Negre was born in Girona in 1971. Judging by the main characteristics of her creations, we can define her style as aristic ceramics or ceramic sculpture. Her idyll with this material started early in life, when she was 18. After studying art and psychology, she dedicated herself to the latter, while ceramics became a hobby she did in her workshop. Years later, Nuri decided to switch to ceramics as a full-time job. After winning a provincial prize and organizing collective exhibitions, she had her first exhibition in Girona, the same time she gave birth to her first child. This was the beginning of her successful artistic career. Lately, Nuri has been exploring the worlds art-therapy and art pedagogy, which she has been teaching at a school close to her workshop. A new prize, the first prize at the Biennal Angelina Alós d'Esplugues, reinforced her career. Her creations, through heat-resistant clay, slips and rust, combined with her unique style, talk about living organisms, metamorphosis and movement. Each piece talks about what nature didn't do, but could have done.

Entering Isidoro Hernández's jewellery shop is similar to entering a world full of color, creativity and design; every single piece is carefully studied, designed and created with special materials. Like a Renaissance artist, he does not only look for the intrinsic values the gems, but he explores their beauty, color, size, type and uniqueness, and blends them together in beautiful designs. Isidoro creates all his pieces from scratch - he conceives the jewel, does the sketches, searches the materials and carves the gems.

Fili Plaza was born in 1957 in Salamanca, Spain. She studied Interior Design at the Escuela de Artes y Oficios of Barcelona, and also took ceramics courses. Fili began her career as a sculptor, and in 2003 she initiated her career as a jewelry designer for a being she knows very well: the woman. Fili picked the human body as the main theme of her creations, as a way of expressing her ideas through sculpture. She treats the human body as a physical matter that helps us communicate, and also isolate, ourselves from the others. Torsos of men and women, imposing sculptures of two human beings broken lengthways, couples that hold themselves in order to - find themselves?, protect themselves?, comfort themselves?, recognize themselves?, or simply search for their lost soul. Since 1988 Fili has been doing individual and collective exhibitions at art galleries in Spain, the Netherlands, Ne
