MATIAS DE FALCIS
Matias De Falcis is a multidisciplinary artist and architect from Argentina, currently based in Barcelona. From an early age, he showed interest in geometry (dimensionality) and working with construction materials (fragments), which allowed him to discover how the interaction between elements alters spatial interpretation. This led him to study architecture in the city of Rosario, where he graduated in 2013 with an honorable mention medal for his outstanding academic performance. During his training, he was captivated by digital tools and technology, to the point that the use of CNC and laser cutters became frequent tools in the design of his works, demonstrating a notable artistic concern. In his desire to delve deeper into the world of art, he decided to settle in the city of Barcelona, where he met Mareo Rodríguez, a Mexican artist with whom he had the opportunity to collaborate in his studio and absorb his concept of "light as ether", giving start to his career. In Barcelona, he attended numerous immersive art events that caught his attention, leading him to focus on generative art audiovisual experiences. His training with multimedia artist Paola Olea, focused on "exploring movement and form to transmit peace and harmony," would be the missing link in the chain to connect the conceptual ideas of his works. Matías combines light and matter to create a sensation of dynamic movement, manipulating the way light diffuses, reflects and refracts through programming, creating the illusion of movement even in three-dimensionally static works. His works have been presented in art centers and exhibitions, as well as in international festivals such as the Islamic Art Festival, Art Basel Miami Beach, The Gallery by Lastcrit, Exhibition with Mareo Rodriguez, Kaleido Art Experience, among others.
