Persönliches / Vita
IKER GARCÍA BARRENETXEA 1979, San Sebastian, Basque Country, Spain. "I´ve been drawing ever since I remember. It´s something natural on me, although I´d discover my real passion for painting and the use of colour at my second year at Facultad de Bellas Artes, Lejona, Bilbao." At the age of 21 Iker decided to move to London, just after his first ever show in Santander. In 2003 he showed large format colourful paintings in London for the first time while he was selling T-shirts with daring drawings at Spitalfields Market. In 2003 he also did a limited edition of screenprints on paper. Exhibitions in London include group show "I Dreamt in th City" at The Mall Galleries in 2004. While in London friendship with artists Alessia Avellino (¨"The Hugh Casson Drawing Prize" at the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition 2004), and Francisco Centoffanti (Carroll Foundation Award 2003) has been supportive for Iker´s approach to painting. In 2005 Iker embarked on an interesting project in collaboration with the Spanish musician Arbol (Miguel Marín) exhibited in Barcelona and San Sebastian mixing music and painting: "Inside Out. Lines as a device to exteriorize the rhythms guided by emotions". He worked in his studio in Barcelona for nine months for International Festival of Contemporary Art in Barcelona VII Edition in 2006 before returning to London where he converted a warehouse in Hackney Wick with three other friends and where he now lives and works. In December 2008 Iker presented his lasted reflection of the delicate situation of beaches at the launch event of Corona Save the Beach in London, painting on canvas during the event and amongst the 700 invited guests. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o6IYADbKWAY http://www.coronasavethebeach.org/eng/Our-Project/Our-project3 Iker has also worked on many street scenes of the East End on oil on canvas. "I believe colour is a very powerful way of expresing when I paint. When I arrived to London I felt very atracted by it´s urban landscapes and i´ve been working on both, outline drawings and more figurative paintings. I see painting and drawing as different languages but that beneffit from each other. When studying an urban scene I observe a lot the relation between colours. I think it is in this process where i kind of fish the colours that I will make of my own: my palete. Through outline drawings i work on spontaneousity and rhythm. I like to challenge myself to express within few lines."
