Iván Prieto (ES) was born in Ourense, Spain. His work focuses on ceramic sculptures, but Prieto also creates illustrations and installations. In his colourful surrealistic sculptures, Prieto captures certain fragility of humans and life in general, including indications to physical disabilities (such as deafness and blindness), as well as mental imperfections, with each character being inspired by real-life human counterparts. Having also had similar personal experiences, Prieto wants to explore the transgressing of physical and mental borders in his art, which are in some way relatable for everyone. In this way, the works also are a self-portrait of the artist.
