Marcos Vidal

Marcos Vidal Font is an unorthodox sculptor. Inspired at the beginning by a Dadaist practice, his work develops and materializes in a critical dialogue with objects, very often as furniture pieces. Vidal experiments with the location of his creations in the exhibition space and in the public space, creating specific works for specific contexts. His work materials are wood and ceramics to which he sometimes incorporates objects from different origins creating pieces that show a fusion of imaginary objects.

Graduated at the San Carlos Faculty of Fine Arts in the Polytechnic University of Valencia, Spain in 1991, graphic art speciality, and graduated at the University Autónoma Coahuila in Mexico 2019, where he was invited as guest teacher.
