Angel Marcos (1955, Spain)

Ángel Marcos, a native of Medina del Campo born in 1955 and currently residing in Valladolid, embodies the essence of a multifaceted artist within the corporate landscape. His journey into the world of photography began early, and he seamlessly blended his creative instincts with a robust professional background as an advertising photographer for several years.

Influenced profoundly by his experiences as a social worker, Marcos has cultivated a unique sensitivity that permeates his artistic endeavors. His projects intricately weave together the fabric of social, economic, and historical relations, often exploring themes of power, vulnerability, exclusion, and emigration. These thematic undercurrents are delicately interwoven with reflections upon the natural, rural, urban environments, and their adjacent peripheries.

A testament to his artistic prowess, Ángel Marcos was honored with the prestigious 2017 Valladolid Province Artistic Career Award, bestowed upon him by the Valladolid Provincial Council.

In the realm of his artistic journey, Marcos harnesses the vast landscapes and the concept of journey itself as powerful evocative tools that speak to our very essence. While the human figure may be notably absent in many of his works, they compel viewers to embark upon a personal introspection, fostering a heightened sense of self-awareness. Beginning with projects rooted in his closest territories—places and memories of his hometown, Medina del Campo—his artistic oeuvre has evolved to encompass broader explorations, including "Landscapes," "Intimate Subversion" (captured eloquently in 'The established disorder'), and a poignant examination of the outskirts of the contemporary urban dream in his collection "Around the Dream."

Ángel Marcos's work not only captivates the eye but also engages the soul, inviting corporate audiences and art enthusiasts alike to contemplate the intricacies of the human experience through the lens of his exceptional talent.
