Octavio Floreal

1966, Isole Canarie

Octavio Floreal was born in Las Palmas, in the Canary Islands, a cultural exchange hub among three continents that influenced his worldview. He earned a degree in painting from the Faculty of Fine Arts University in La Laguna, Tenerife, Spain, and further honed his artistic studies at the Higher School of Fine Arts in Antwerp, Belgium. After numerous exhibitions in various European cities, he decided to move to Italy, first in Rome and then in Turin, where he currently lives and works.

A pervasive element in all his work is spatiality. His life and constant relocations led him to a profound reflection on the concept of space, encapsulating a reality formed by a defining sense and a supporting structure. This applies to an idea, a country, an institution, and even something as simple as a table. Translating space as a combination of structure (line) and sense (color), the initial analyses of this plastic exploration were sought in painting, but it was through sculpture that he consciously arrived at the first solutions.

The artist, using graphite marks finding their three-dimensionality in wire, invites us into a world of symbolic figures carrying both a deeply personal and collective memory. These figures fill the space with meaning, becoming not only beacons in our present but continuous ‘structures of meaning’ for our future.
