Jorge Barbi studied Philosophy at Santiago de Compostela University. His artistic activity, developed since the eighties, cannot be easily integrated into any of the trends that have characterized Spanish art in recent decades. In spite of the technical diversity with which he elaborates his work, there are, however, elements that are constantly repeated in his works and that unify his long career, such as the passage of time, chance, humour or games of the meaning of language. His work is in public collections as "la Caixa" Foundation, Barcelona. Renfe, Madrid. Coca-Cola Foundation, Madrid or Patio Herreriano Foundation in Valladolid.
