Xavier Pons Inbernon
Xavier Pons has a superior degree in mural painting from the Escola Llotja of Art and Design, he studied Fine Arts at the UPV (University of the Basque Country in its Spanish acronym) and Leioa, Bilbao. He has attended several monographic courses on modelling techniques, advanced illustration, layout, molds and new materials applied to sculpture.
He is a multidisciplinary artist, who for years has combined painting with the creation of sculptures made from various recycled objects, which, once melted, cut up and stripped of their original function and meaning, become the raw material with which to undertake his work, often related to futuristic and science fiction worlds.
In this edition of Drap-Art, he shows a new line of work, made with spider webs, which he “hunts” and transfers to paper, just as he finds them, allowing the spider to show its art and nature to surprise us, while he overcomes his phobia of arachnids.
