Eduardo Valderrey (Barcelona, 1963) uses urban environments and architecture to highlight the link between cities and identities. In the 1990’s he began working with photography using his own works to merge images and spaces.
Valderrey graduated from the University of Barcelona in 1987 with a degree in Fine Art. He teaches a number of courses and leads workshops on image and graphic process.
In “hortus” (Barcelona 1996), he first started exploring the different ways of using sculptural space to support projections. From 1997 onwards, due to the many different scholarships that he was awarded, he continued his the pursuit of this theme abroad: "Le Jardín" (París 1997 / Ministry of Culture), "Round Trip" (NewYork 1998 / Pollock-Krasner Foundation - Triangle Artist´s Workshop), (Boston 1999 / MacDowell Colony), "Sur" (Rome 1999 / Ministry of Foreign Affairs), (Madrid 2000 / Casa de Velazquez), "Borders" (Texas / Generalitat de Catalunya), "OverPass" (CAM / ArtOmi /Triangle Org).
His works are displayed in many different museums, foundations and private collections, such as The National Art Museum Reina Sofia, the Museum of Modern Art in Tarragona, The Triangle Arts Association Workshop in New York, the Spanish Academy in Rome, ArtOmi, to name but a few.
Eduardo Valderrey recently received the first prize in the Tarragona Biennale, as well as the first prize in the Guasch-Coranty Biennale in Valls. He has also exhibited his project "Malpaís" in the Astarté Gallery in Madrid, in the Museum of Modern Art in Tarragona, the Amasté Gallery in Bilbao and in the “el terrat” exhibition space in the Senda Gallery in Barcelona.
In 2008 he won the Norte Artistic Scholarship (Norte Foundation) and in 2011 he was awarded the first prize by Inund'ART in Girona.
So far, Eduardo has created great two exhibitons for our gallery: “Outborders" in 2006, "Aerópolis" in 2010 and "DISurbia" in 2014.
