Joan Curieses is a singular creator in the artistic landscape of Catalonia. He is a priest and a sculptor, two activities he has performed in parallel throughout his life. A graduate in Fine Arts from the University of Barcelona, he has produced much of the liturgical sculpture and furniture in many of the churches in the Tarragona region and beyond, in other locations in Catalonia.
Although most of his work has a religious subject matter, he has also produced public works (monuments, sculptural reliefs in urban locations) and small-format works (maternity scenes, women and couples, which belong to private individuals).
If we consider the current panorama, there are very few artists in Catalonia who specialise in religious art. This makes the work of Joan Curieses particularly interesting. Clearly, we are talking about works produced by a priest; therefore, these are works produced with respect and love in accordance with his beliefs. However, this has never prevented him from expressly himself freely when producing his works, whether religious or secular.
