Sergio Hidalgo Paredes, also known as SIXEART, better known as the artist SIXE PAREDES, was born in 1975 in Barcelona.
He began his artistic career in the world of graffiti at the end of the 1980s and it has been evolving and transforming. Always investigating and looking to take his art further, he began experimenting in the mid-90s with other artistic formats such as painting, sculpture, and installation.
This is how, at the end of the 90s, he settled into his own studio developing work that came to define him as a visual artist. In this studio, he developed an abstract universe of color equipped with shapes and symbols that show a very personal aesthetic, one that is instantly recognizable visually and has helped to shape his own unique identity and artistic originality. This evolution has led him to develop an abstraction that is based on a very diverse and intense palette of colors, with complex symbolism and a meticulous mastery of geometric forms, which sometimes includes numerical cryptography, referred to by the artist as “circuits” helping the viewer “connect” with another, deeper reality.
Meanwhile, since he started working in his studio, he has continued his artistic career outside of the studio combining both the public and the private, through artistic interventions in the street and constant work in his studio.
