About Us

Our collaboration began with the first artistic project of the ECC (European Culture Club) in Jena in Germany in 1991, and our work was maintained until its dissolution. In 1994, we built our studios together in an old mill, on the Tordera River, near Sant Celoni, Catalonia. In 2004, we moved to Roquetes, near Tortosa, on an estate, with the goal of building our own cultural and training centre, with new workshops and an outdoor sculpture exhibition/ sculpture garden. In 2006, we completed the first phase and we were able to start our work. “El Raval de l’Art” was inaugurated as a public cultural center with an opening exhibition. Since then we continue to develop and offer our interesting and diverse work in Exhibitions and markets in Spain and Germany. We also have created an artistic training program to share our talents with others.
