About JAUME AGUIRRE
After studying Computer Engineering at the Autonomous University of Barcelona (UAB), between 1997-98 I design an autonomous mobile robot navigating in a controlled environment like a final degree project (center of computer vision-CVC - barcelona). I study painting and mural arts in school Massana (BCN, 1998-2000) and engraving and printing techniques in the conservatory of the arts of the book - school Llotja (BCN, 2000-2004). Together with Biel Vilanova get the prize of mural arts of school Massana (2001). The same year I founded the Neolithic action group -AccNeo- (http://accneo.com), whose work revolves around the idea of neolithic attitude, neologism bounded by the same group based on the work process as an experience inseparable from the final work. In 2003 my goal are new technologies, this time I study computer graphics media. After a time oriented work in VIDEO ART-NET, recover the painting again as a means of expression. The new work takes a new synthetic dimension due to the digital languages. I work in the art production of "Stories for good men and women" of Company Kiku Mistu, thanks to the art scholarship at the University of Barcelona (UB, 2008). This year I'm co-founder and president of the cultural association espaiSotaterra. Up to 2007 directing the Department of Graphic Design and Creativity in advertising agencies Milfeleyes and Javidai in Barcelona. I leave this task to carry out my own project: estudi41, projects with new technologies, business freelance now combined with the work of professor of 'multimedia and graphics applications' in school Liceo S.XXI from Sabadell (Bcn). Since 2006 my artistic work has focused on AccNeo-group (Josep Dominguez and Jaume Aguirre), aimed at intermedia and action art. Since 2009 we have a resident project at the Center for Creation and Contemporary Thought - Can Xalant (MatarÃ³), in 2010 we are artists living in Ca l'Estruch, Arts Factory Live (Sabadell) and 2011 in RocaUmbert, Arts Factory (Granollers) and again in Ca Estruch.
