Symbolism and meaning through an urban, social or political circulation


AB portrait

Adrián Balseca is a self-taught, he has exhibited his work in solo and group shows, locally and internationally. Most of his works are site specific. They evolve from an interest and process of historical research, like the material of objects and how they become loaded with symbolism, through their urban, social or political circulation.
