about Carlos Cartaxo
Graduate in Fine Arts, University of Salamanca, 2003. Lives and works in Madrid. His work as a painter has been represented in various group exhibitions in Spain, including "No tags" at XF Proyectos, Madrid; "Grados, Aristas" at HDT Gallery, Segovia; "Lenguajes del papel VIII", Fernando Pradilla Gallery, Madrid; "Línea", Pep Llabrés Gallery, Mallorca; "Alta fidelidad" at the Miguel Hernández University of Elche organised by the Martínez-Lloret Collection and "60 años de geometría" at the Lonja de Calatrava with the Ars Citerior Collection. In 2007 he was awarded the Caravana internacional de artes plásticas prize, which led him to show his work in different cities such as Belgrade, Ohrid and New York. His solo exhibitions include "Modelos de construcción" at the Centro Cultural Pérez de la Riva, Madrid and "False Store Window" at Salmaia Spai Dárt, Altea. In these two exhibitions we can recognise his interest in going beyond the plane of the canvas by creating three-dimensional painted objects. In the last five years he has participated continuously in the main fairs in the capital, such as Estampa, DrawingRoom, Art Madrid, JustMad and JustLX Lisboa.
In his profile as curator and organiser of exhibitions, the exhibition created jointly with Enrique Juncosa "Las geometrías posibles" for the Odalys gallery, Madrid, where he also participates as an artist, stands out. Another exhibition was "Re-presentaciones" held at the Centro Cultural Coreano, where he brought together several artists from Madrid and South Korean artists within the framework of the Artmadrid14 fair.
