Art Madrid'23 – Kepa Garraza

In addition to private Spanish and international collections, his work is present in the collections of the Artium, the Community of Madrid or the Art Collection. Contemporary Patio Herreriano Museum.
The work of Kepa Garraza reflects on the nature of the images that we consume daily. Through fictional scenarios where a parallel reality is recreated, invites the viewer to question issues related to identity and information manipulation. His work questions the official discourses and puts into question the processes of institutional legitimization. His ironic and acid look offers alternatives to the reality we know and proposes a healthy exercise: always doubt the official version.
