José María Yturralde

Cuenca, 1942

He was born in 1942 and lives and works in Valencia. Graduate and doctor in Fine Arts from the Polytechnic University of Valencia and Academic Number of the Royal Academy of Fine Arts of Sant Carles de Valencia, he currently works as a professor of Painting at the Faculty of Fine Arts of Valencia.

He did his first computer work at the Computing Center of the University of Madrid as a scholar, at the age of twenty-six. He has worked as an assistant curator at the Spanish Museum of Abstract Art in Cuenca.

With his famous "Figuras Imposibles" he began to develop a type of art close to science and is considered the introducer of cyber art in Spain, with works in laser and holography. He is the creator of the "Estructuras voladoras", three-dimensional works that make you feel like you can fly.

The last stage focused on the study of color and its influence on emotions and mood.

A scholar of multidimensional geometry, space and the idea of emptiness, all his work has an internal structure, studied and measured. Behind the color are hidden patterns of squares that rotate and give harmony to the fabric. If one wanted to define a constant in his extensive work, this would be his determination to blur the boundaries that separate science from art, all with paintings and sculptures, synergies of sensitivity and intelligence.
