Juan Fabuel (Valencia, 1976) studied an MA in Media Science and an MA in Cultural and Social Anthropology. After working as a cultural producer and documentary film director for international companies, in 2005 decided to begin his artistic career developing his personal projects. His work is placed between intimate and social structures, using fiction as the most powerful tool to talk about reality. He is aware that by altering reality he creates new meanings and interpretations of the known which will lead to develop new connotations and questions about ourselves. The artworks, when looked carefully, they all deal with our perception of this so-called reality, relationships, memory, time and the way that we interact with the different emotional and physical landscapes, forgetting about narrative and focusing on dynamics.

His projects have been shown both nationally and internationally - Descubrimientos PHotoEspaña (2008), International Photography Contest Purificación García (2006 y 2009), Galleria delle Colonne (Parma), Galveias Palace (Lisboa), Centro Cultural Greenspot (Amsterdam). In 2007 he relocated to New York City and attended some courses at the International Center of Photography (ICP). In 2009 he is awarded with the Spanish Academy in Rome prize and in 2011 was awarded with the Spanish Academy in Paris prize. In 2013 he co-founded La Posta Foundation (Valencia) where he collaborated as a curator of art exhibitions until 2016. Currently he lives and works in Zurich
