The artwork of the sculptor Nassio Bayarri is to be honoured at the Bancaja Foundation. Opening on the 2nd March, the Valencian artist who died at the beginning of this year will have his works shown from across his career starting from the 1950s up until his death last month, at the age of 90. Bayarri, who is considered to be one of Valencia’s most famous artists and is known across the world, became a post-war figurehead for his adaption of sculpture to the modern day using a variety of materials such as wood, stone, clay, plaster and cardboard. Bayarri was most famous for his ‘cosmoist’ works which then went on to form his self proclaimed ‘Cosmoist Manifesto’ in the 1960s, which took inspiration from the era of space travel which captivated many at the time and formed itself into his work.

A creator, touching upon the abstract and more down to work pieces such as the sculpture to Valencian gravedigger Leoncio Badía, he has been the recipient of numerous awards including but not limited to the 1996 Gold Medal of Fine Arts and in 2010 the Generalitat Valenciana gave him the Distinction of Cultural Merit.

With works that have been seen across the world, the exhibition, which has been curated by architect Javier Domínguez and the sculptor Amparo Carbonell, is set to be the largest and most complete display of his work ever to be put together in one place. Featuring an array of his sculptures, installations, drawings, paintings, panels and collages, his work will already be familiar to many citizens of Valencia forming many familiar sights such as the monument to the fans of Valencia CF or the bust of Blasco Ibáñez. The exhibition will also be a place where visitors will be able to view some of his lesser known works such as his poetry and correspondence and other sculpture pieces. It would be a shame to miss out on an exhibition paying tribute to one of Valencia’s most well known citizens. More information can be found here:
