Eugenio Recuenco was born in Madrid in May 1968, in the middle of student protests that had spread out from Paris. As he says “I heard all that fuss, and was in a rush to be born and see what was going on”. He graduated in Fine Art –painting-, from Universidad Complutense de Madrid.
Without a physical space to create his large-scale paintings, he began to collaborate with fashion magazines -first in Spain and later in Paris, where he would often spend long periods of time- while waiting to be able to devote himself to painting. Vogue España, Madame Figaro, Wad, Vogue UK, Spoon, Planet, Vanity Fair, Ster, Kult, Twill, GQ and Zink are some of ther magazines he worked with.
For almost 8 years, he has carried out a personal photographic project called 365º, which consists of 369 photographs, one for each day of the year. 369 images, 8 years of work, 120 persons, a team of 300 people and the unique vision of Eugenio Recuenco. A journey through the last 50 years of our time, a reflection of our virtues and imperfections and a walk through the memories of an exceptional artist.
And all within the same space. A very ambitious project that has been completely exposed by the first time as an installation at CEART, Tomás y Valiente Art Center of Fuenlabrada, Madrid, in 2018. The exhibition 365º, during 2019, has been fully exhibited in the Vital Foundation Room, Spain; in the Camera Work Gallery, Berlin, and in Shanghai Culturest, China. Some of the 365º photographs have been exhibited during 2019 in Paris Photo, France, Summerset House, London, and ARCO, International Contemporary Art Fair, Madrid. Actually is in RIVER CITY, Bangkok.
