Mapas que no lo son/Imaginary Cartographies

The Collages of Emilio Gil

A collection of 51 original works first exhibited in the Quintanar Palace Cultural Center in Segovia Spain in May 2013, “Mapas” challenges the relationships between art and design in a way that fuses the disciplines and opens up a new direction for Gil. The results are exciting new cultural creations based on a fascinating compilation of colors, techniques, textures and artistic conceptions many of which use elements of cartography in their construction.

 Emilio Gil is the  Artistic Director of Tau Diseño - one Spain’s most distinguished and pioneering graphic design firms.
