HYBRID Contemporary Art Fair | VIII Edition

We participated for the second year in a row in Hybrid !!! 

Hybrid Art Fair is a different and disruptive international contemporary art event focused on presenting experimental proposals, site-specific installations and promoting the mix of disciplines. It has positioned itself as the quintessential springboard for emerging and mid-career artists and is an unmissable meeting point for collectors.

Hybrid Art Fair offers a unique space to give visibility to risky projects and expand the professional horizons of independent initiatives and young galleries.

The exhibition is located in a special environment, the rooms of a hotel . This, together with the transdisciplinary artistic program of the fair, creates a different and unique experience for visitors in which direct contact with artists and immersive curatorial projects stand out. The fair is also the perfect place to purchase unique pieces of contemporary art at affordable prices .

Abi Castillo (Vigo, 1987)

Ceramics have offered him a world of aesthetic and creative possibilities to give shape and volume to his creatures and characters. He feels the need to give life to objects, always looking for eyes to look at, which is why faces are very important in his work.

His works maintain a romantic ideal of the natural world, fantasy, as if it were his own garden and his characters hide keys of humor and drama, always playing with ambiguity.

This ambivalence between mysticism and drama, between the monstrous and the beautiful, is very present in his entire personal project.

Alicia Varela (Gijón)

Varela's work is characterized by his focus on geometric abstraction, which is reflected in his colorful and dynamic compositions. His paintings and drawings often feature shapes and patterns that create a hypnotic and vibrant visual effect.

In his work, Varela uses a meticulous and detailed technique that combines the use of line and color to create complex and expressive compositions. His works often reflect his interest in geometry, nature and architecture, as well as the relationship between humans and their environment.

Miguel Wattio (Seville, 1966) 

He is a self-taught artist living in Gijón since 2004. From a very young age he showed artistic concerns. Although he held several exhibitions in cultural centers in Seville, there he always worked as an electrician (that's where Wattio comes from) and it was not until 2011 when he held his first individual exhibition in an art gallery.

His career has oscillated between the figurative and the abstract, but always inspired by Pop Art.

A new stage has begun where its characters seem to have come back to life with their original pop within their landscapes of geometric abstraction.
