Born in Mieres (ES), lives in Brussels (BE).
Spanish artist Angel Vergara (°1958, Mieres, Spain) has lived in Brussels for more than thirty years. Over the years, he embraced the Belgian surrealist tradition and the more critical intellectual praxis. Central to Vergara's work is often art, and the art world itself, of which he criticises the monetary aspects and the creative tension between the elitist art experience and everyday popular culture.
Vergara uses an extensive visual vocabulary: installations, performances, sculptures, sketches, videos, etc. Whatever medium he uses, through the maximum use of its pictorial qualities and the surprising combinations with the painting praxis, he proves his dedication and his mastery of the art of painting.
