Gabriel Coca was born in Pamplona, Spain in 1989. He got a Masters degree in painting from the UPV/EHU n Leioa. His work can be understood as a research of painting itself, as a study on dimensions and space, the relationship of mind and space. He plays on the contradictions of opposing forces, looking for dynamism in apparent stability, and for stillness with movements. He argues that with a bit of imagination and meditation his paintings will reflect the reality of their locations. He thinks of painting as an approach to contemplation, reflection, knowledge and self-knowledge. This mindset allows him to combine different elements and create their own languages through their interactions.
