A brief overview of the life and career of the creators on display:
Mariano Ruiz Cecilia is considered one of the greatest representatives of the most innovative pictorial art in Andalusia. Mariano is a native of Jaén, where he owns a farm museum; an extremely important factor as he is considered to be the author of this earth. Despite leading a life at home, he has managed to internationalise his art, and is currently in high demand in countries such as the USA and Italy.
Augusto Moreno Rodrigo is an artist from Granada who has a degree in Fine Art (in the fields of painting and sculpture), in 1987, he made the decision to join his father’s workshop. As a result he has excelled in making sculptures in forged and welded plate. He also develops very original paintings, taking a particular interest in the various technical procedures involved. His work has been exhibited in many major cities throughout Spain and as a result has gained a vast amount of public recognition.
José María Rodrigo Moreno also joined his father’s workshop in 1987; he studied Fine Art at the same university as his brother, but with a focus solely on sculpture and specialising in goldsmithing. Examples of his work include the Throne of the Most Holy Corpus Christi Cathedral of Granada and the crown of the Virgin of Sorrows in Santa Maria de la Alhambra. José takes a particular interest in a wealth of environmental issues, and is working on a collection of insects on a big scale, some of which can be seen at the Kasser Rassu exhibition.
