Xavier Mariscal at La Pedrera

Posted on 1 October 2010 in Barcelona, always!, Nuñez i Navarro Hotels

Xavier Mariscal, Valencian-born artist working since 1970 in Barcelona, presents a new exhibition at La Pedrera, the famous building by Antoni Gaudí.

Cobi. Barcelona'92

With drawing as an essential instrument, Xavier Mariscal has developed his own artistic language which has gone beyond graphic design. The creator of Barcelona’92 Cobi has become an all-round multidisciplinary artist. Mariscal’s language is synthetic, with few strokes and a great deal of expressiveness. His works have been already on exhibitions at Memphis, Milano or Paris. He is also the “father” Twipsy, Hannover 2000. Thanks to his designs and ideas, he has partnered with architects such as Arata Isozaki or Alfredo Arribas.

It is a nice coincidence for Núñez i Navarro Hotels, as Alfredo Arribas designed our B-Hotel and Hotel Soho Barcelona.

Discover him at the exhibition “Mariscal a la Pedrera”, which looks back over this designer’s forty-year career. Also, discover the working methods used by this tireless creator who has created a five metre high work entitled Alegria for this exhibition.
