Nicolás Laiz Placeres

Nicolás Laiz Placeres (1975) was born in Lanzarote, Canary Islands, and currently resides on the island. He received his Master in Fine Arts from Goldsmiths College of the University of London and his Bachelor of Fine Arts from the Complutense University of Madrid. He has received numerous awards, and his works have been exhibited in the Canary Islands and in mainland Spain, as well as in Vienna, Berlin, London and Seoul, among other cities. Through different techniques, the artist reflects on concepts such as landscape, exoticism and the construction of nature as a cultural, social and economic concept. In his projects he can adopt, according to his needs, the point of view of a naturalist or a historian, and thus employs both aesthetic concepts of Mexican socialist muralism and the Russian constructivist vanguard.
