Bringing National and International Art to Edinburgh

Josemiel Platz

Josemiel Platz was born in San Miguel de Tucumán, Argentina, in 1982. He graduated from the School of Architecture, Design, and Urbanism at the Universidad de Buenos Aires in 2007 with a degree in Graphic Design.

Platz’s art revolves around the creation and destruction of spaces as a means of rebellion against that which is set, as a way of underscoring transformation and natural changes.

Each present state holds in it what happened before, earlier traits and experiences, in a sense of endlessness and no return.

The abstract is, for him, a way of reflecting universality, a labyrinth with many ways-in and no certain outcome. A constant shifting dance.

Space and the body are the structuring vectors; the tension between surface and figure, the gravitational, rejection of space and loss of balance connect to the spiritual in a proposal where alchemy and creativity meet to generate art.

Platz has been exhibited successfully worldwide and his work became particularly popular among American collectors. Urbane Art Gallery is the first gallery to represent him in Europe.
