Artist and mathematician, Pep Vidal shows a special interest in infinitesimal calculus, topology and infinite series. After completing his thesis on mathematical algorithms to improve the accuracy of the instruments used in particle accelerators, Pep Vidal reached two conclusions: that there are extremely sensitive and complex systems, and he is not interested in research that does not include his own life experience. Since then he has been working on artistic projects about infinitesimal changes: minimal changes that are constantly everywhere.
He has exhibited solo in different institutions such as Abrons Art Center in New York, Museo de Arte Contemporáneo del Zulia in Venezuela and Museu Nacional d’Art de Catalunya. Vidal has participated in many institutional group shows such as Caixaforum Barcelona, Joan Miró Foundation, The Cerezales Antonino y Cinia Foundation or ISELP.
He has won several awards like Fundación Botín Visual Arts Grant 2016-2017 and Miquel Casablancas Award 2015 for publications and the GGAC award to the emerging artist for the best exhibition for his solo show Who wants to be an impatient gardener? presented at ADN Galleria in 2018.
