In 1997 he joined the technical team of Jaume Plensa’s studio as an assistant for 4 years. Studying at the ADK, Akademie der Künste from Berlin coincides with the sculptor Anthony Cragg who encourages him to start his career as a sculptor. His work is part of national and international collections and has participated in numerous contemporary art fairs. Starting from personal experiences and from intuition uses iron and wood as main tools, lead, copper, resin, crystal and stone are also part of his expressive palette. The emptiness as part of the work and the color that Camps is gradually introducing, endow his work with great expression and feeling.
