Statement

The  training of this artist takes shape by delving into the various fields of formal expression under Bauhaus’ influence  and the new Swiss typographic style when, in the early eighties, he studied at the Schule für Gestaltung Basel (Basel School of Design). Subsequently, he completed a BFA and a MFAGD at the Rhode Island School of Design in Providence (USA) and decided to explore the spirit and expressive feeling of free and natural composition. During those years, Soler-Roig became an active witness of the great decade of American contemporary art, working in New York, and assimilating the creativity of Pop, Post Modern Art and New Media. La formación de este artista adquiere cuerpo al profundizar en los diversos campos de expresión formal bajo la influencia de la Bauhaus y el nuevo estilo tipográfico suizo, cuando, a principios de los años ochenta, estudia en la Schule für Gestaltung de Basilea. Posteriormente completa un master en la Rhode Island School of Design de Providence (USA), y decide explorar en el espíritu y el sentimiento expresivo de la composición natural y libre. Durante esos años, se hace testigo activo de la gran década artística contemporánea de Estados Unidos, trabajando en Nueva York, y asimilando la creatividad del Pop, Post Modern y el New Media Art.
