curriculum Javier Mariscal (Valencia, 1950) Estudio Mariscal (Barcelona, 1989)
Javier Mariscal is, first and foremost, an image creator who develops his work using all kinds of supports and disciplines. Furniture design, painting, sculpture, illustrations, interior design, graphic design, landscaping, gardening and so on are all the object of his professional, vital activity. Together with Estudio Mariscal, which he founded in 1989, he has recently done the interior design and graphics for the H&M store in Barcelona, the collection for the Uno Design contract, the 11th floor of Hotel Puerta América Madrid for the Hoteles Silken group, the graphic image of the 32nd edition of the America’s Cup, the new brand image for Camper for Kids, the exhibition on his work Mariscal Drawing Life at the Design Museum in London, the sculptural pergola for Hospital Río Hortega in Valladolid, two monographic publications: Mariscal Drawing Life and Sketches and the dissemination of the new law on children of the Generalitat of Catalonia. The full-length cartoon film Chico & Rita, which he directed together with Fernando Trueba and on which he has worked for three years, is now completed and will be on the screens at the end of 2010. He is the author of several pieces of furniture for Vondom, Uno Design and Magis. His forthcoming projects include the retrospective exhibition which will be able to be seen in La Pedrera in Barcelona from September 2010 to January 2011.

Mariscal expresses himself through a personal language which is complex in its intention and simple in its statement, innocent yet provocative at the same time, which serves to innovate, take risks and communicate; to carry on exciting the eyes that look at his work and to create complicity with his interlocutor.
