And it’s not just us — the 200,000+ view count on Catá’s Vimeo channel speaks for itself. Yet despite all this recognition, Catá is extremely shy… or is it because of this? In order to find out more about him, we invited Catá to join us on a crisp autumn morning in Madrid. We’re happy to say that he agreed…
Suited and booted, the artist Pedro Paricio looks like he’s come straight out of a scene from Reservoir Dogs. Born in 1982 in Tenerife in the Canary Islands, he is young, talented and now successful too. After working dozens of different jobs in pursuit of realising his dream of painting, he now lives off his art. And he lives well, at that.
Olmo Blanco’s drawings transform everyday contexts. Geometrical patterns cover walls, floors and the most common objects. His works are based on the ephemeral, in the persistent repetition of simple figures that turn into a kind of mantra, into a memory of our most recent archaeology. This is the first time that Olmo visits Edinburgh.
For those unfamiliar with Ricardo Cavolo´s, work, it could be summarised as an illustration of the opium fuelled fantasies of a Russian sailor recently returned from an arduous voyage around the world.
A lively Facebook chat with Saelia Aparicio

The 33rd edition of ARCOmadrid came to an end last Sunday 23rd February. Over 160 galleries from 25 countries filled IFEMA’s pavillions for five intense days. Only three London galleries – not counting Marlborough* – were represented at the event: Faggionatto, Arcade, and Carroll/Fletcher.
Juan Delgado, Ringing Forest in Jerwood Open Forest.
Juan is a multidisciplinary artist living in London. His introspective work explores the intimate reality of life, the inner world of cities, of different cultures, and of people. Given that art is a natural extension of the artist, we observe in each of Delgado’s projects a high degree of profound self-examination and as such, we see individuals interacting in a given milieu, be it a forest, the sea or a city, through an entirely subjective prism. Delgado typically works with photography and film. In previous projects he has used three giant screens running simultaneously to project footage of various subject matters: a fearless tetraplegic woman navigating a sailing boat down the La Mancha Canal; the relationship between an individual and the violent society (such as that in certain suburbs of Bogota) in which he lives; a fascinating study of the Palestinians and their daily struggle against Israeli occupation.
