Thinking how our mind generates spaces where the dream is mixed with the subjectivization of reality, reproducing a new state of things. Carlos Sebastiá investigates different ways of representing the shapeless, blurry matter that is memory and the images we perceive.

He uses heterogeneous and in many cases opposing artistic resources to propose pictorial/photographic installations with non-linear, even absurd narratives. Narratives that make sense from an intimate personal look. He likes to bring geometries closer and combine them with lines of expressive drawings, complementary colours are common and the back and foreground are interrelated, breaking fixed positions, all seeking to stress the dialogues and generating vibration. 

Sebastiá's work has also a spiral tendency where the pieces represent snapshots of the work processes. The materials used, collages, acrylics, drawings and digitized photographic images are reused at different times, constantly moving from the physical to the digital in a continuous transformation process.


Carlos Sebastiá is an international artist currently residing in Valencia. He received a Fine Arts Degree from the Polytechnic University of Valencia in Spain, he studied also at CAFA (Central Academy of Fine Arts, Beijing) for one year, and moving finally to London for his MFA at UAL (University of Arts of London) which finished with distinctions.


His works have been exhibited in Spain, Portugal, France, USA, China, Austria, and the UK, in different festivals, art fairs or galleries, like most recently the Museum Angerlehner in Wels (Austria), or Imaginaria Photo Festival in Castellón (Spain.)


Sebastiá was selected in the International Festival of INCUBARTE and awarded by the Prize (Club Levante Special Award), also nominated to the BEST PHOTOGRAPHY at DALI INTERNATIONAL PHOTO FESTIVAL in China.


He has completed artist residencies in Iceland on the occasion of the Fresh Wind International Art Biennale, Austria, Spain, the United Kingdom and China.


Some of his works are in important private collections as for instance, DKV Collection is considered one of the best collections of young artists in Spain
