In his work, the pioneering Spanish experimental artist Nacho Criado (Mengíbar, Jaén, 1943 - Madrid, 2010) analyzes the material conduct and physical evolution of the object, examining its procedural and spatial aspects. At the beginning of his career in the 1960s, Criado embraced the formal principles of minimalism, but he later transitioned to the use of impoverished, discarded materials with a distinctly Arte Povera feel. Around the same time he also developed an interest in conceptual art, posing questions about the relationship between the idea and its formal materialization, the passage of time, fate, identity and the hybrid nature of artistic praxis. undefined
