Jabi Egaña hails from Bilbao, where he gained a masters in Fine Art from the University of the Basque Country.

About

Specializing in oil painting, Jabi spent many years teaching art in his community and exhibiting in galleries before moving to London 7 years ago in an effort to expand his artistic stimulation. He now resides in Oxford where he continues to paint in his home studio and explore new inspirations.

Jabi searches for images taken of conventional day to day life, specifically from the different communities and cultures he has experienced, and introduces an element of the surreal by editing, adding or erasing elements of the original image to create new contexts and draw comparisons to the larger issues affecting our society. He is drawn to the idea of our seemingly innate desire to be greater than what came before, whilst at the same time ignoring the issues that have plagued humanity for generations.

This exhibition runs from the 9th January 2019 - 5th March 2019
