We are very priviledged to present Teo San José Aguilar (Valladolid 1958), sculptor, painter, art therapist and writer in our garden.
Today, Teo makes monumental abstract art; in the past he made works of wood and steel. In 2000, Teo was elected to participate in the Biennial Exhibition in Florence and the international press wrote enthusiastically about his work. He subsequently received an invitation to represent Spain in the Triennial International Exhibition of Contemporary Art in Paris, the only Spanish artist to participate. In the year 2006 something happened that changed Teo´s life. He participated in the Summer Exhibition of the Royal Academy in London, where he exhibited together with Antoni Tapies. The judges chose his ‘Firebird’ as one of the most important works of the exhibition. Thereafter he began to exhibit all over the United Kingdom, in New York and in Mexico.
