Txuspo Poyo uses montage and pre technological devices such as pixel vision, celluloids or newspapers to build tales with crossed imagery. His plots bring together unfinished leftovers from the past and fragments of a collective and individual culture, captured from the history of art, films, architecture and science fiction. These projects are re­reading forms and models of production and representation. Poyo received his B.F.A in the Basque Country University, Bilbao and has been awarded numerous grants and awards. He has held solo shows in venues such as the Artium Museum, Vitoria; Art Center La Panera, Lleida; Contemporary Art and Design Museum, Costa Rica; La sala Montcada de la Caixa, Barcelona; and BizBak, Bilbao. He has been featured in group shows at the Jeu de Paume, Paris; CAAC Museum, Sevilla; Marco Museum, Vigo; Guggenheim Museum, Bilbao; Reina Sofía Museum, Madrid; Artist Space, New York; Fondazione Sandretto Re Rebaudengo, Torino and the Image Biennale, Paris. In 2001 he received a production grant from the Fundación Botín and in 2015 the Fundación BBVA video production grant.
