Goldsmiths Fine Art Graduate. Over 9 years of University Lecturing & Tutoring experience in Fine Art, Design & Fashion courses. Recent exhibitions at the Henry Moore Institute & South London Gallery.

Methodology

I have a passion to ​help people grow, amplify their voice, develop new ideas and remove obstacles in making your projects and dreams come to fruition.
In my tutoring service, I offer a highly personalised and tailored consultation service to students, artists, creatives and people who are expanding or embarking on new projects. We can work through many custom-tailored solutions to your creative practice, school assignment, business idea or academic project from concept & making, visual identity, applying to university, grants and funds.

I support students on their projects for A-Levels, university applications, Foundation, BA & MA as well as professional practice.

Many of my students get their desired places at top Universities including The Royal College of Art, Goldsmiths College, Central Saint Martins.

Together we will be working through problem-solving strategies, with a straightforward approach, I work in removing obstacles, and if you are interested we can also step outside of your comfort zone and find new territories to expand into creatively.


As a University Lecturer I have worked with 400+ students and taught in Universities including Central Saint Martins (UK), Leeds Beckett University (UK), Nottingham Trent University (UK), University of Rochester (UK) and I am currently an Associate Lecturer at London College of Fashion (UK). I Have given Art talks and presentations and been part of panels at: The Henry Moore Institute Leeds (UK), Nottingham Trent University (UK), CAAC Museum, Seville (Spain), Goldsmiths Centre for Contemporary Art in London (UK) & ARCO Art Fair Madrid (Spain).
Alongside many projects I also created and ran ‘Alto Arts Residency’ in a jungle enclave in Alto Paraiso Goiás in Brazil, I was co-creator of Gazua Curatorial project in Rio de Janeiro as well as co-created and ran Art Lab: Romita 26 in Mexico City.

Experience

I am Rafael, a friendly Spanish Welsh Artist, University Lecturer and producer with over 15 years of working in the creative industries.
I work through a combination of warm and sharp approaches to thinking, making and blockage and conflict resolution.

I have an acute sensibility to seeing where a project is struggling and I am fast in finding solutions to those problems. I am a Goldsmiths University graduate with a very active exhibition career, as an artist, in the past 3 years I have exhibited in the Museum of Contemporary Art Taipei (Taiwan), C3A Museum in Cordoba (Spain), South London Gallery (UK), Leeds Art Gallery (UK) in May this year I will have a solo exhibition at the Henry Moore Institute (UK).

As an Art Practitioner, I have a very good working understanding of the Art Market in Europe and the Global South, I have worked extensively in London, Barcelona, Mexico City and Brasil. With this having a well-rounded understanding and a global perspective when it comes to the Arts and new enterprises. In my client history, I have worked for people which include Lisson Gallery Artist, Pedro Reyes with his piece: ‘Sanatorium’ for the Guggenheim Museum. Merce Cunningham Foundation Executive Producer Trevor Carlson: with their piece ‘Not a moment too soon’ for the Barbican in London. Fashion brands, MCQ Alexander McQueen, Carla Fernandez in Mexico for various projects which include concept and strategy development for campaigns, lookbooks, production and content. In the editorial sector, I have worked for clients including Harper's Bazaar Latin America, Dazed and confused, Gato Pardo, Neo2 & Oyster Magazine.


In my travels and work I have also had the opportunity to study and connect with great thinkers and creative practitioners including Alejandro Jodorowsky, Butoh and Bioenergetics Master Diego Piñon in Mexico, Environmentalist, permaculturist and zoologist Marianne Soisalo as well as being a constant researcher of many therapeutic teachings which I have received as a client including Rational Emotive Behavioral Therapy, Ayurveda, Reiki, Theta healing, Tantra, Bioenergetics and Shamanism.
