Ignacio Uriarte | the artist
Born 1972, Krefeld, Germany.
Original artworks, prints, exhibition posters, monographs, books, collectibles.
When I quitted my last administrative job in order to work as a full-time artist, I realized that the new- gained freedom implied a great deal of responsibility.
Under no circumstance I wanted to abuse art for the sake of a personal liberation, which would have turned me into a cliché-artist (rebel and marginal).
On the contrary, I decided to stay in my own personal petit-bourgeois reality in order to deal with it from the inside, using the expertise acquired over the years.
That is why I have not stopped using the same tools and methods, similar to those of any office employee, working in a routine way and with routine as my major focus.
