Javier Mariscal Biography

Javier Mariscal

Valencia, Spain, 1950

A Spanish master whose talent has been recognized internationally, Javier Mariscal has worked in diverse disciplines and mediums, showing an impressive talent for all.

Graphic design, furniture design, painting, sculpture, interior design, urban landscape and garden design, all form a part of his professional activity. Mariscal is equally happy looking at a Klee painting as he is riding a roller coaster. At times in his work he doesn't differentiate between an electric devise, a person, or a chair; all have volume, all think, laugh, and cry. Every image that passes through his retina, every experience, is recorded in his visual memory and later becomes a part of his work.

Mariscal began his studies in design at the Escuela de Elisava in Barcelona, Spain, but later preferred to learn and work on his own.

He has receieved various prizes. Of particular note is the National Prize for Design, which he was awarded in 1999.
