Spain, 1988

José María de Aurora (1988) is a multidisciplinary artist born in the northern part of Spain (Santander) who lives and works in Barcelona. Seduced by clean lines and minimalist aesthetics, his work is based on architectural and serene pieces that embrace visual poetry.

A lover of art from a young age, José María de Aurora has explored various artistic fields such as painting, sculpture, engraving, and haute couture. He exhibited his first work at the Tàpies Foundation after winning a regional competition. Later, he completed his training at the School of Arts and Fashion Techniques of Ramón Llull University. Currently, José María de Aurora is known as the founder and creative director of the Spanish haute couture brand Ze García. Amidst the whirlwind and opulence inherent in haute couture, the artist finds creative calm working on his pictorial works in his studio in Aiguablava on the Costa Brava.
