Jose Bifano.

Born in Caracas, Venezuela in 1968, and currently based in Barcelona.

My educational background is diverse and dynamic, reflecting my early passion for the arts and my ongoing curiosity to learn.

I began my artistic education by studying drawing and painting in my hometown. Later, I deepened my drawing skills at the Art Students League of New York. In addition, I studied History at the Central University of Venezuela, where I began my career as a professor-researcher.

As a professor, I had the privilege of teaching courses on the History of Science and Theory of History. Through my work, I sought to discover new insights and perspectives on the evolution of science and the role of history in shaping our understanding of the world.

My artistic work is the culmination of a diverse range of interdisciplinary inspirations, steeped in the principles of kinetic art, op art, pop art, and the Bauhaus movement.

Through my exploration of the interplay between color, shape, movement, light, texture, and human perception, I push the boundaries of artistic expression to create a captivating sensory experience for the viewer. My artistic vision is rooted in my fascination with the dynamic and ephemeral nature of existence, reflecting my unwavering interest in constant metamorphosis, the play of light and shadow, and the mixture of different textures.




At the heart of my creative practice is the power of art to transform our perception of the world.

I passionately believe that every object and material has the potential to be reused and reinvented in unexpected ways.

Through my work I want to show that the most everyday objects can have a new meaning and purpose, it all depends on the value and use that we give them. That is why I use toilet paper, a commonly disposable material, as a support for my works.

My creative process is meticulous and focuses on finding harmony between order and chaos, connecting movement with precision, color with form, and balance with unpredictability.

As an artist, my goal is to capture the transience of existence and provide a space for introspection and self-discovery.

With this approach I seek to capture the essence of the world that surrounds us immersed in the historical paradox of change in continuity.
