Antonio Garcia Villarán

Metaversical II

Antonio García Villarán (b. 1976) is an artist based in Seville, Spain, whose artistic career stretches back to when, at age 13, he entered Reina´s adult-level Academy of Arts. As a student at the University of Seville, he was allowed to participate in graduate-level exhibitions, where his artworks always sold out. After his early graduation in two majors (painting and sculpture), Villarán officially joined the faculty at the University of Seville and went on to earn his cum laude Ph.D.

After leaving the University of Seville, he founded his own academy and has since become a prominent figure in the art world and as an art-focused influencer and teacher. Apart from teaching at his academy (CREA 13, since 2000), Villarán has taught art to inmates of Penitentiary Center Sevilla II and to children at high risk of social exclusion. Much of his current work has taken inspiration from Villarán’s long trips to India, and his earlier sculptural work can be found prominently standing in public plazas across Andalusia. Learn More



Do you live in a Metaverse world or a Physical world? As these two worlds merge, we seem to be living in a space more Metaversical. Metaversical confronts the reality of physical and digital art.

Metaversical exhibits two same originals from two different realities. While usually the physical artwork is created and scanned into a digital version. Here, the digital artwork has been created first and then a physical version was created based off the digital version.

So, which do you believe holds the most value? Which do you prefer? Antonio Garcia Villarán aims to empower the Collector to make this decision and inform us all as we move towards a Metaversical world.
