Josep Ginestar graduated from the national school of fine arts in Paris and the University of Paris VIII. Then, he conducted his Ph.D. at the Polytechnic University of Valencia, in Spain.
The artist uses several means of expression such as drawing, photography, installations, in situ interventions, videos, and sculptures.
His main line of work is based on autobiographic narratives and is particularly interested in the possibilities to express contemporary human spirituality.
He is heedful of the strong power of spiritual energy, capable of realizing beneficial changes in our society.
Quantum physics informs us that the world is primarily constituted of energy and not materials as we believed before. This observation opens a new field that links physics to spirituality, and matter to reality perceived by the mystics and oriental philosophies.
The work of Josep Ginestar partially represents the awareness of the unity that connects all living things and observes the re-sacralization of nature. He reaches this aim through the creation of ephemeral works in situ without harming the environment, using humble materials. Reflections on space are also part of his concerns.
Through his engagement with the NGO Altair, he has been going to the Tafilalt region for several years. In this context, he creates artworks in nature. But these installations are not simple decorations; he uses the search for beauty as a means to transmit his thoughts and reflections.
Thusly, he questions the paradigm of the officiality of contemporary art, because he is himself located at its antipodes.
Josep Ginestar has participated in several exhibitions in Spain, Morocco, Germany, Mexico, Belgium, Portugal, Holland, Croatia, Italy, Egypt, and France.
He also took part in the Cairo Biennale program, Art London, and the Havana Biennale program in Arco.
