"Obsession - #1"
— Cesc Abad
Simco Drops is pleased to present Communal Living and Obsession by Cesc Abad, the artist's first NFT and print releases. The prints depict animals and objects in dream-like settings, both from which the artist sources inspiration:

Communal Living: "When Diderot described Chardin's work, “Glass of Water and Chocolatier”, circa 1760, he did so praising the artist's mastery in achieving a composition that emphasized the transparency of the water inside the glass, and the gloss of the jar's varnish. He described it at the same time as a living nature, through which the air circulates around objects. Therefore we can speak of truthfulness and an excellent excuse to rehearse the practice of painting, since the artist learned from life, from the copy of objects that he could place at his free will. This concept of living nature is what the artist Cesc Abad tries to show when we look at works such as “Communal Living”, in which animals are the support of the elements that make up this still life. On the back of a hybrid between a sheep and a wolf, living beings are placed, some of them looking at the viewer, to provoke a feeling of strangeness and a new
interpretation of the genre."

Obsession: "The use of vases in his paintings is one of the essential elements in still lifes. Precisely these elements show us how the oldest technology, that of ceramics, has remained unchanged over the centuries, and they continue to be essential pieces in our daily lives, which allows the artist to locate the human presence in the work. The appearance of the cat, as a support for the vase, gives the work an aspect that moves between the dystopian and the dreamlike, maximized by the animal's fixed gaze on an insect."

Born in Barcelona in 1973, the only son of a family dedicated to the family business. At age of fifteen I was expelled from school and it is during this time that I started being attracted to visual arts, especially painting.

My father paid for my first workshop under the condition of working in his local business. During these first few years I experimented with art and presented it in different art galleries. Everything was going well until my father suddenly died when I was 21 years old.

Without even having time to think about it, I found myself at the head of my father's business. This deeply influenced my way of understanding art, the world and even myself. I worked as a manager of this business, always using creativity to solve any problems that we could face.

During my time in management, I created more than ten successful companies in different fields (electronics, industrial refrigeration, air conditioning, sports and fashion). In this period I felt that my passion for painting made me weak in the eyes of my business colleagues, so I decided to hide it. Having enough free time and savings, I decided to install a large workshop at work in the strictest secrecy.

It was at my company's headquarters just next to my office. There was a door, which lead directly to my art workshop. This is where I experimented non-stop with different materials and techniques (painting, photography, film, ceramics etc…), hardly ever exhibiting my work to anyone. This space was nicknamed "the wall" by my employees. No one knew what was behind the door, not even my closest colleagues. I only shared it with some people of my family.

Despite not having the need to sell my work and not having resource limits, I had to hide my creations from prying eyes and had more and more business activity. So, all of this began to take a toll on me. After living a double life for the most part of twenty years, I decided to sell my companies in 2016 and dedicate myself exclusively to creating pieces of art. Therefore, I moved to a more modest studio and began to prepare work to show the world. I decide that already it is not a secret.
