Jose Bifano

Spain

Born in Caracas, Venezuela in 1968, and currently based in Barcelona.

My educational background is diverse and dynamic, reflecting my early passion for the arts and my ongoing curiosity to learn.

I began my artistic education by studying drawing and painting in my hometown. Later, I deepened my drawing skills at the Art Students League of New York. In addition, I studied History at the Central University of Venezuela, where I began my career as a professor-researcher.

As a professor, I had the privilege of teaching courses on the History of Science and Theory of History. Through my work, I sought to discover new insights and perspectives on the evolution of science and the role of history in shaping our understanding of the world.

My artistic work is the culmination of a diverse range of interdisciplinary inspirations, steeped in the principles of kinetic art, op art, pop art, and the Bauhaus movement.

Through my exploration of the interplay between color, shape, movement, light, texture, and human perception, I push the boundaries of artistic expression to create a captivating sensory experience for the viewer. My artistic vision is rooted in my fascination with the dynamic and ephemeral nature of existence, reflecting my unwavering interest in constant metamorphosis, the play of light and shadow, and the mixture of different textures.
