Javier Pérez Blanco. Barcelona 1968.

Master of Fine Arts in Sculpture at the University of Barcelona. Simultaneously he studied at the Glass Center of Barcelona, and thanks to a scholarship, also at Sheridan College of Art and Design in Toronto, Canada.

After being professor at the Glass Center of Barcelona, he created Blanco Studio in 1999, his own studio of Art, Design and Glass, at the very center of Barcelona.

Known for his glass sculptures, using new technologies and his interactive installations, far from being limited to one discipline or materials, his work also explores other aspects such as design or illustration, in pursuit for the true essence of art at different artistic experiences.

His work develops the idea of the present time by requiring the acción of the spectator or even his use, the artistic object is just a medium for the truly art, which occurs in between the object and the spectator.

“Artistic objects doesn’t exist, but artistic experiences and appropriate objects to provoke them.” Javier Blanco, INTERPRETACCION, 1999.
