A*DESK has been offering since 2002 contents about criticism and contemporary art. A*DESK has become consolidated thanks to all those who have believed in the project, all those who have followed us, debating, participating and collaborating. Many people have collaborated with A*DESK, and continue to do so. Their efforts, knowledge and belief in the project are what make it grow internationally. At A*DESK we have also generated work for over one hundred professionals in culture, from small collaborations with reviews and classes, to more prolonged and intense collaborations.

At A*DESK we believe in the need for free and universal access to culture and knowledge. We want to carry on being independent, remaining open to more ideas and opinions. If you believe in A*DESK, we need your backing to be able to continue. You can now participate in the project by supporting it. You can choose how much you want to contribute to the project.

You can decide how much you want to bring to the project.

Aldo Urbano Perez (1991). In his work he creates enigmas whose ultimate meaning escapes, especially to himself. Through painting, he investigates the mechanisms of perception in search of a renovating experience, creating installations in which an experience of this type can be possible. His work also drifts towards drawing and writing, with which he adopts narrative forms close to comics in which irony and humour can be present.

He has shown his work individually in spaces such as Bombon Projects (Barcelona, 2017), EtHall (Barcelona, 2018) or the Galeria Balaguer (Barcelona, 2016), and has collaborated as a duo in exhibitions such as the Compositions programme of the Barcelona Gallery Weekend or "Assumpte: una forta intuïció" (MNAC, 2018). He has received the GAC award for emerging artist 2018, the Guasch Coranty 2014 grant and the Sala d'Art Jove publishing grant, with which he published the comic "A forest whose fire has been extinguished".
