Juan Luis Moraza

When I’m in Madrid I always have to visit the Reina Sofia museum. It’s one of my favourite museums, I’ve seen so many great exhibitions there. And if you go for the last 2 hours of the day (7-9pm) it’s free. Obviously it’s quite busy but still worth it.

We were wandering around not feeling very inspired by what we were seeing when we came across the work of Juan Luis Moraza, who had a solo show there. His work was new to me. And it was so great to discover it.

His work was so playful and beautiful. I love that he uses and manipulates everyday materials and changes the scale of things. I was really excited to discover his work.

Here are my favourite things.
