Poetry, eroticism and freedom

Joan Gardy Artigas’ art works conjure up themes such as tolerance, poetry, irony, eroticism, but most of all… freedom.

As a child, Joan Gardy Artigas was born into a very artistic environment. After studying at “École du Louvre”, he makes a name for himself by establishing his workshop in Paris where he collaborates alongside Braque, Chagall, Giacometti and especially alongside Joan Miró, a well-renowned ceramist and close friend of his dad. His monumental sculptures, ceramic works and carnal, archaic-shaped drawings – which are often inspired by the human anatomy as well as by Oriental and Mediterrenean mythologies – adorn walls and gardens across the world. Joan Gardy Artigas’ art works conjure up themes such as tolerance, poetry, irony, eroticism, but most of all… freedom.
