About Gastón Lisak

Gastón Lisak is an artivist and conceptual artist based in Barcelona. His art form is focused on the “Objet Trouvé” exploring today’s identity throw the transformation of found objects, using the collective imaginary and visual culture heritage.

His goal is to inspire those who see my work to look more
carefully at the world around them, to rediscover the beauty in daily objects, and rethink today’s culture. Connecting the old and the new to project better futures.

As a result, Lisak's work becomes in effect, portraits of contemporary society.
