Oscar Tusquets Blanca
A true polymath whose career spans many decades and disciplines. His immense creativity is one of the driving forces behind BD Barcelona, the company he helped found, his boundless talents bring together the worlds of architecture, art and literature.
An important figure in the international post- modern movement, early in his career he forged a close friendship with Dalí an attraction in many ways between opposites but that nonetheless produced memorable works that first established BD Barcelona as a company driven by art and pure creativity.
Relentlessly curious, he continually blurs the boundaries and explores the limitations of his various creative worlds. Painting his perhaps his true vocation, a medium he has returned to throughout his life, selected most recently to be part of the London Biennale, his paintings have been exhibited throughout Europe.
A recipient also of some of the most distinguished cultural awards from the Gold Medal for Fine Arts, to being made a Chevalier (Knight) of the Order of Arts and Humanities in France, he is an artist in the most profound sense of the word.
His work is in the collections of such major museums as the MoMA in New York and the Centre George Pompidou in Paris.
