Art Madrid'23 – Pepe Puntas
about Pepe Puntas
The artist Pepe Puntas began his artistic education at the Arts and Crafts School of Cordova, and he continued his studies at the “Santa Isabel de Hungría” Fine Art College in Seville, where he specialised in Wood Carving. His work is characterised by the recourse to the technique of sgraffito. Pepe Puntas draws acid, comic sceneries, with lines that seem crazy and crude, as a reflection of the current context of life deeply marked by the crisis. Throughout his large career, he was granted several awards. His work takes part in important collections like the IVAM and the Ministry of External Affairs, and he has participated in many remarkable artistic projects. His work has been awarded and acquired by collections such as the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Spain; Ayto Navacerrada, Medal of Honor XVI BMW Painting Prize, Ist Prize of the IX Painting Contest Caja Sur-Casa Galicia; Ayto Cordoba; Bullfighting Museum of Cordoba; IVAN - Museum of Modern Art Valencia, Museum of Contemporary Art Malaga; among others.
