ECHEBERRY, PRINTS ATELIER IN LONDON
ECHEBERRY is a Kingston upon Thames based painter, architect and University lecturer with Basque roots. He describes himself as a nomad of the XXIst Century as he lived in Basque Country, Denmark, Rome, Warsaw and London.
His natural interest in creativity - as a way to understand the essence of beauty - has been evolving constantly wherever he was, however it always comes back to his roots. He does not have a clear pattern in his works, due to the fact that he runs away from repetitive solutions.
His references are architects like Richard Neutra, Alvar Aalto, Mies van der Rohe, etc., artists like J. Oteiza, and painters like Hockney, J.M. Lazkano, Matisse, etc.
He received a very early formation from May Colmenero and continued there all over his childhood. In the University he received artistic drawing lessons while he was studying architecture. During the period he lived in Rome he received lessons from Ms. Cianci when he changed his way of painting into a more natural and freer. Since then, he mixes hidden meanings and metaphors with simple spaces to suggest self-emotional states.
"This creativity has something in myself which attracts my soul. It starts a conversation with the surrounding world and finds peace on this path.
Sormen honek badu nigan zerbait erakartzen nauena. Erabateko aritzean dantzan jartzen nauena. Gogoa hizketan hasten zait inguruarekin, inguratzen nauenarekin. Segi eta segi horretan bilatzen du atsedena, inori adierazi beharko ez balio antzera, sen hutsaren eskutik dijoa bidean. Hemen naukazu."
