We are Artclub

Artclub was founded by two creative art lovers to help local artists grow their presence at the local and international art market. Art is an honest and truthful form of communication that always attracted our attention and with Artclub our mission is to use that strength to do commercial “ethical responsible” communication, with and through art.

The founders.

Thomas Secher

Born in a creative home in Denmark, I was a small entrepreneur from a very young age. My naturally interest for business quickly allowed me to work and learn as a business developer in a broad range of different organizations. In adult age, I moved to Sweden where I completed my masters in marketing. I am the energetic strategist with experience from both business, NGO’s and political organizations, who decided to settle down here in Malaga to be a part of this amazing creative challenge.


Pablo Rojas

Growing up in Patagonia in the south of Argentina, I was interested in the World of communication since I was very young and I started doing radio already when I was 15 years old. Since then I have developed my understanding of reaching and convincing any audience. After completing my studies in social communication, I worked as a radio journalist, before I finally found myself as a videographer. I am very excited working in the world of art with this fantastic team.


Growing up in two totally different parts of the World, Thomas studied philosophy, business management and marketing while Pablo first became a journalist and later found himself in the video universe. In Malaga the two found each other and decided to join forces and work with their passion. And here we are – Welcome to Artclub.

OUR ARTIST

LUIS BUJALANCE

My purpose is to paint using the nature rather than reproduce it. I don’t use much color in order not to interfere with the colors of the materials that I use on my paintings. Asphalt is the new material I am working with, but it is not my first experiment. Before I use to work with cement, plaster or adding found used things or paper. I like all these ingredients to be themselves as they are out of the paintings. I don’t use them to recreate reality but to create more reality where things are ordered in a different way that can be suggestive for me and make them form groups that carry a meaning. The meanings are not always the same for everyone and that make the whole thing more interesting.Sometimes I also write on my paintings. What I write is not to be read as a statement. Words can be ambiguous and I like ambiguity. Many meanings are always more interesting than just one. I started using asphalt when I walked on the “Camino de Santiago” a few years ago. I would look at the patches on the roads and make sketches from them. I have discovered a great versatility in this material that gives texture to my work. That texture in opposition to the white paint make the stains move in a direction or leave pass through over it. Obstacles and easy ways are found by these stains, like the water of rain heading for a river or the sea. The tendency of water is to follow the easiest way, and that’s natural, but the tendency in life is not always just to follow the easiest way… we have to find the balance between nature and ego.As simple as that is the interpretation of my paintings for me, but is not the only one and I expect people to find their own, according to themselves.I would like the titles to be taken as a reference and not as an imposition on the painting.I want abstract to remain abstract.
