Eusebio Sempere was born the 3rd of April, 1923 at Onil, Alicante. He closed the circle of his life 62 years later, on the 10th of that same month, and in the same place he was born. His journey through time and space was a persevering effort to create art in every aspect of his life.

His constant search projected him outside that close space to enter an ascending spiral.

This web, dedicated to him, tries to understand his creative process and open our minds to the vision that he discovered and created from reality.

“…that’s why I only play my role within an elite…that role is that of the one who thinks and makes others think, different from other elites that neither think nor make anybody think, or that think of ways not to make people think… You know, sometimes I think we are stuck in a dead end, that our stuff won’t be of any use to anybody.”
