----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Oscar Parasiego is a Spanish multi-disciplinary visual artist currently based in Madrid. He graduated with an Honours Degree from the MA Fine Art Photography at the prestigious School of Photography EFTI in Madrid (2008). He has delivered several art projects over the last 10 years working in different countries and collaborating with very diverse communities.

His practice explores the untruthfulness of photography and the inability of photography to capture the complexity of human self-reflection. Some of the themes explore identity, communication, emigration, death and relationships.

His artworks evoke surrealist aesthetics creating powerful and playful images, always in need of the observer to complete the journey.

He is currently interested in pushing photography’s boundaries and exploring the untruthfulness of photography with virtual and invisible technologies. His aim is to re-think photography in an innovative way, no longer as a 2D or frozen time instant but something else.
