Spanish photographic artist García de Marina draws on surrealist influences to create ‘visual poetry’. Using everyday inanimate objects, the artist conjures dream-like imagined scenes that personify his props – to fairytale effect. A firm believer that language can limit the personal interpretation of art, he leaves his works untitled, inviting viewers to ruminate on their meanings and contextualise each piece with unique lived experience. García de Marina has exhibited across the world, notably at many international photography festivals.
