Biography / Uriginal

Uri, otherwise known as Uriginal, is an artist based in Barcelona, who has gained massive recognition for his art which details, a mixture of historical art pieces with modern elements. By taking the subjects from famous works of art he brings a new perspective of life to his works by adding bright colours and bold lines. Uri’s works are featured in the URBAN NATION 2018 exhibition, ‘UN-DERSTAND The Power of Art as a Social Architect’.

Following with the theme of combining modern elements to classics, he involves the uses of kaleidoscopic geometry throughout a significant number of his works, having a heavy influence from fellow Spaniard and world-renowned architect, Antoni Gaudí and his application of multi-coloured mosaics in his works.

The pieces made by Uri have an essence of being preserved by father time with a emphasis upon a certain subject or occurrence. The mixture of this along with the tessellations of the mosaics gives the illusion of constant development or alternation and the colours, humour and creativity is part and parcel of Uri’s expression.
