Iván Prieto is an artist from Ourense, Spain. He currently divides his time between Berlin and Spain. While successfully working as a sculptor, he is also an experienced installation artist and illustrator. His sculptures focus on the imperfections and weirdness of being human in today’s society, transforming them into surreal characters. Iván’s work has been featured in exhibitions across Europe and in China. In his free time, he enjoys cycling and listening to jazz.
