About Cristobal Gabarron (b. 1945)
Born in Mula (Murcia), Spain, Cristobal Gabarron received his early artistic training in Valladolid before pursuing his career in France and Italy. He currently divides his time between Spain and the United States. Gabarron centers his work on the idea of the life of individuals and the coexistence and development of human values. Throughout his 50-year career, Gabarron has been commissioned by public and private organizations across the world to create noteworthy and unique art pieces for special occasions, for example, the Olympic Mural for the Barcelona Olympic Games (1992), the Encounter Mural for the Universal Exhibition of Seville (1992) or the sculpture Atlanta Start (1996). His collaboration with the United Nations has spanned most of his career, starting in 1986, when he designed the World Peace Stamp to celebrate the UN International Peace Year, and continuing with his artwork for the UN New Millennium Summit (2000) or the Millennium Chapel (2001), and in October 24, 2015, a monument entitled "Enlightened Universe" exhibited in New York's famous Central Park, and unveiled by UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon in celebration of the UN's 70 Anniversary. Prominent cultural institutions like the IVAM - Valencia Institute of Modern Art-, the Museum of Modern Art in Gdansk, Poland, or the Oscar Niemeyer International Cultural Center in Spain have held retrospective exhibitions of Gabarron’s work. This is Gabarron's eighth exhibition in China in the past sixteen months, an uncommon honor for any contemporary western artist.
