Taquen (b. 1992) is a visual and mural artist based in Madrid, with a degree in Fine Arts from the Complutense University.
He is interested in movement, changes and the relationship between human beings and the environment around them. Passionate about nature, he does not understand a society so far from it. Naturally, his figurative and minimalist work, which uses line as the main element, always accompanied by a palette of predominantly warm colors and pastel tones, reflects his own experience within the natural environment, where he mixes natural and human elements to speak metaphorically about our relationships, our feelings and our instincts. Birds, plants, hands and movement are some of the formal pillars that dominate his works, always based on a poetic and respectful approach.
Taquen understands urban art as a tool for positive change and social cohesion, always looking for the creative process to involve both the community and the spectator.
