Iker Spozio was born in Italy and currently lives in Donostia-San Sebastián, Spain.
After a degree in Modern Art History and studies in Archaeology in Milan's Statale University, He began working as an illustrator, mostly in the music and publishing fields, before switching to painting.
Spozio's work features abstract, geometric compositions made with ancient and traditional techniques and has been shown worldwide (Seoul, Moscow, Tokyo, London, Bilbao, Rome ...).
The paintings are made in egg and oleoresin tempera on calcium caseate. They are part of an ongoing project titled "Conversation Pieces", loosely based on the 18th century English genre of the same name, which featured groups of people engaged in dialogue and interaction, shown at times outdoors, at times in domestic interiors: it is the idea of interaction between various elements.
In terms of composition and colour, Spozio's work is based on some of his main interests of study: all the various laws for a harmonic division of the painting's surface - from ancient times to early 20th century avant-garde - and the optical/chromatic theories of scientists such as Chevreul, Munsell and Ostwald.
