JUAN BORDES – NINO LONGOBARDI

Juan Bordes (1948), sculptor, was born in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria and studied architecture at the Escuela Técnica Superior in Madrid, where he has been a teacher since his PhD in 1988. Since 1976 he has been devoted first and foremost to sculpture, which he studied at the Escuela Luján Pérez in Las Palmas with Abraham Cárdenas. First of all he made erotic sculptures and later he cultivated a realist style. He has public art works in Madrid, Las Palmas and Barcelona. He is a member of the Academies of Fine Arts of Canarias and San Fernando in Madrid; he joined the last in 2006. At present he is also the director of the Calcografía Nacional. He has written many works, mainly on anatomy, the human figure, and drawing.

Nino Longobardi was born in Naples (Italy). Self-taught, in 1968 he met gallery owner Lucio Amelio and critics and artists such as Carlo Alfano and Joseph Beuys, who influenced him. His work is focused on the male figure, with a few synthetic strokes and a reduced chromatic palette. With drawing, painting and sculpture he explored subjects such as the body, death and the weight of the past. In 1978 he held his first solo exhibition in Gianni Pisani’s studio, which was followed by various exhibitions in Amelio’s gallery. In November 1980, the Irpinia earthquake, which caused significant damage in Naples, added a tragic sense to his creations; he explored the destructive power of nature and collaborated with Amelio in the large exhibition Terrae Motus on the theme of the earthquake, with works by more than 50 prominent international artists. In 1982 he took part in the collective Italian Art Now: an American Perspective (Guggenheim, New York) and in Avanguardia Transavanguardia (Aurelian Walls in Rome). In 1983 he presented his work at the Joan Miró Foundation in Barcelona. In 1998 he exhibited in the Royal Palace of Milan and in 1999 in the Neapolitan Castel Nuovo; in 2000, in the Civic Gallery of Modena; in 2001, in the National Archaeological Museum of Naples and in 2013 in the National Museum of Capodimonte.

Both Bordes and Longobardi have worked in Spain with the prestigious Galería Vijande.
