Guillermo Mora (b. 1980, Spain) lives and works in Madrid. He received a BFA from the Complutense University of Madrid and The School of the Art Institute of Chicago, and completed his PhD thanks to a grant from La Caixa Foundation. In recent years, he has created a particular visual vocabulary in which formal elements like color gradients, layers, textures and shapes are used to create an abstract mode of communication. Mora’s stimulating compositions create environments through which the artist questions the protocols and procedures of contemporary painting


Mora was featured in 100 Painters of Tomorrow by Thames & Hudson, awarded the Audemars Piguet Award in 2014 and the Generaciones 2013 Prize, and received the Residence grant in Casa Wabi, México in 2018, a scholarship at the International Studio & Curatorial Program (ISCP) in New York in 2016, the Residence at the Spanish College in Paris and a fellowship from the Spanish Academy in Rome in 2010–2011.
