Born in Pamplona, formed in Barcelona and living between both cities, Javier Aristu mainly uses photography, graphics, video, objects or writings to try to produce solid and timeless works, being especially interested in the relationships between image and word, simplicity and naturalness, meaning and nonsense, poetry and truth, chance and humor or even rock and roll. After combining his personal work with design and art direction for years, in 2022 he begins to publish and exhibit regularly
