Toño Barreiro has been developing, since the mid-eighties, a multidisciplinary work that alternates photography, painting, sculpture and digital processes. In his work you can observe a whole series of new methodologies and creative processes that give rise to sinuous and synesthetic paintings, playing with the concept of deconstruction, the symbiotic, or the most elementary biological processes.
