Cayetano Ferrández Azorín is a Spanish artist born in 1963. He lives and works in Alicante. Self-taught. Fundamentally, his contemporary art works the photographic support and the video.
His narrative works are developed based on micro-stories with a double background where both the social and the individual are questioned. One of the first artists to use social networks from the beginning.
The artist says he always felt photographer, despite being a deserter of the analog process. “It was much later, fruit of the personal evolution and my relation with the work of other artists, that I have considered myself part of them. I believe that until today, I am closer to sculpture than to photography. If I had to define myself, I would tell you that I am a theatrical builder of scenes that I register with my camera.”- says Cayetano.
Admirer of classics like Goya, Rene Magritte, Fellini, Samuel Becket or contemporaries like Erwin Wurm, Dimitris Papaioannou, Roland Topor or Joan Brossa.
It happens that now his referents are no longer confined to the world of plastic, which makes him feel more free and orphan at the same time, where as a photographer he only keep that aftertaste for working with light to give life to inanimate objects.
Interested in the language of the body, I begin with the nude, and I perceive that I can tell more stories through body expression. So I went on to add elements that contributed to building a more complex image … and without realizing it “I made my own reality”.
It is then that photography became the healing, the consolation before all that moves that tears inside, social injustice as a motor to make images, sometimes surrealistic or metaphorical, where to question me, where to seek the meaning of this ” Vital nonsense “.
