Bubi Canal is a Spanish-born, New York-based artist. His work combines various media and artistic methods, including photography, video, and installation, and deals with recurring themes of love, dreams and magic. Working mostly in a primary color palette, he uses found objects and multiple materials to create his own universe of the imagination.
Canal studied at the University of the Basque Country in Bilbao, focusing on audiovisual arts and sculpture. He relocated to Madrid in 2004 and New York in 2011. His solo shows Special Moment (2013) and Magic Garden (2015) were exhibited at Munch Gallery in New York. In July 2014, his work was featured on the cover of The British Journal of Photography and in 2016 won Foam TALENT. His publications include Manual (RV.Papers) and Dreamtime (ACDOS).
His work has been shown at the Centre Pompidou (Paris), Eyebeam Art+Technology Center (New York), New Art Projects (London), Aperture Foundation (New York), and La Casa Encendida (Madrid), among others.
