CARLES PIERA

Random Tribes is a game of identities. Rejecting the most clichéd stereotypes, I have tried to represent the most contemporary and common urban tribes, with a light mixture of styles in each character.

The love I have for artistic creation as an inventor of new worlds, has made me treat each sculpture as a new life, giving it identity and personality individually.

In them, features subtly stand out that become familiar as they are shaped, and that I can recognize in any space in Barcelona. My characters live in the next music festival, the hustle and bustle of the beach on an August morning, in the station where your train home leaves from, or in the supermarket queue where you make your last purchase of the day.

At Random Tribes, each sculpture is a life, a unique identity reflecting the diversity of contemporary urban tribes found in every corner of the city.

His workshop, located in Montcada Reixac, is the epicenter of his frenetic work rhythm, where he constantly explores and enriches his plastic language.
