His pieces have been exhibited in prominent spaces of international scope, among which we can point out the College of Spain in Paris, the Spanish Embassy in Berlin, the Sophie's Palace in Utrecht (Holland) or the Museum Kloster Asbach in Passau (Germany).

about the artist's works

Iván Prieto's work, multidisciplinary, is based primarily on his role as a sculptor. The artist immerses himself in the imperfections and oddities of the human being in today's society and transforms them into surrealist characters that break the canons of beauty and respond to the artist's particular obsession with deformity and the revision of traditional beauty parameters. They are pieces modelled with great freedom and imagination, without being subject to an anatomical canon, which tells us about society, its inconsistencies and contradictions, the isolation of individuals or the author's own concerns in their vital circumstances. It uses materials such as ceramics, resin, plaster or bronze to create figures that seem to be an inheritance of the colourful and interesting Spanish, extravagant and theatrical sculptural tradition; It establishes a balance between seriousness and the grotesque, reality and fiction with inexpressive faces and a sensitivity that seems as if they had been erased.
