"My name is Gus, I was born in a small village in the north of Spain but now I live in the Balearic Islands. Since I was very young, photography and art have always attracted me, I grew up seeing and reading books and works of great artists; Cartier-Bresson, Adams, magnificent impressionist painters."
Gus was born in a small village in northern Spain and has been attracted to art and photography from a young age when he began seeing and reading about the work of great artists like Cartier-Bresson, Adams and magnificent impressionist painters, Van Gogh, Monet, Renoir.
"I suppose that my lack of skill in painting is what has led me to do my work as I present it today, careful editions of my photographs, where I want the viewer to interact with them. I always start with my own images and usually combine two or three images. The majority include people because I consider the human being to be a fundamental part of the environment in which we live.
My creative editions are the fruit of what goes through my mind, I like to define myself as a "dream hunter", just as with photography time stops, that moment is saved forever, I try to transmit what goes through my mind and capture it, "hunt that dream or illusion" forever.
It was only in February 2018 where Gus began showing his work, encouraged by friends, he decided to participate in an online gallery. Quickly gaining attention and recognition, he was selected by PHOTOGRAPHIZE gallery as a Featured Artist as well as by Circle Foundation and IBWPA (International Black and White Photographs Association). Gus is published regularly in art magazines including "Shades of Grey" and "EYE Photomagazine."
Today Gus lives in the Balearic Islands, Majorca, Spain and continues to create his beautiful and imaginative mixed digital media artworks.
