Lopez-Alert has a degree in Fine Arts and a diploma in Library and Information Science from the University of Barcelona, UB. In 2009 he stayed for a longer period of time in Michigan (USA), where he developed a series of poetic and contemporary works with reused paper grocery bags, he named the Michigan Papers Series. His interest in the environment, industrial society, landscape and everything that surrounds it, and how it affects and conditions human life, are recurrent in his work. Michigan Papers is the starting point for many of his later artistic proposals, in which he claims the contemporaneity of drawing, painting and printmaking in a world dominated by digital imaging and in which he nearly always reuses discarded materials.
Llibres, per sempre! is an evolving art project; a critique of consumer society from a reflective and poetic perspective. Used books – full of knowledge, thoughts, and literature – are a starting point for explaining the accelerated transition to an increasingly technological world where the digital image triumphs while painting and drawing tend to become extinct. Works where various languages coexist that subtly intertwine to generate a new contemporary narrative.
