UNIVERSAL CATALAN ARTISTS
Straddling the corner of Northeastern Spain near the French border, Catalonia is a sun-kissed land nestled between the mighty peaks of the Pyrenees mountains and the azure waters of the Mediterranean Sea. Today, the region and its vibrant capital, Barcelona, are known for their outstanding quality of living and abundance of art, culture, and culinary venues.
Traditionally, its people are known for their astute trading skills and overall “European” character. Over the centuries, Catalonia was a true melting pot, and modern Catalans are the heirs to a millenary culture which echoes the many settlers their land has seen—Celts, Greeks, Romans, Moors, Goths, and Franks.
Perhaps it is this rich cultural heritage, along with its breathtaking landscapes and privileged climate, that has led this unique land to produce some of the most whimsical, eccentric and creative minds our contemporary times have seen. Catalan artists of both the past and present are renowned for their unique and avant-garde creations throughout the world today.
