Granada, Spain, 1979.

Lives and works in Rome.

José Guerrero’s work revolves around the representation of landscape and our perception of it through the photographic image. His work is structured in series that the artist develops in places that in some way form part of our imaginary. He is interested in situating himself in borderline spaces, between the rural and the urban, the document and the abstraction, the particular and the universal, the present and the past, painting and photography.

A fundamental characteristic of his work is the specific use he makes of the sequencing of images, as well as of light and colour as structural elements of the work. José Guerrero, trained as a technical architect, decided to turn his career around in 2002 to devote himself exclusively to photography.

Since then he has received awards and grants such as the Enaire Foundation Award in 2022, Pilar Citoler International Photography Award (2017), Manuel Rivera Grant (2011), Purificación García Award (2008), Generaciones (2008), Iniciarte (2007 and 2010), Beca Joven Autor Andaluz Caja San Fernando (2005), among others. He has also been artist-in-residence at the College of Spain in Paris (2008) and at the Spanish Academy in Rome (2015-2016). He has carried out commissions for the MUSAC and the Banco Santander Foundation, and his work forms part of collections, including the following: Centro Andaluz de Arte Contemporáneo CAAC, Spanish Ministry of Culture, Banco de España, Fotocolectania, Fundación Mapfre, the Amon Carter Museum or the JP-Morgan Chase Art Collection among others.

His solo exhibitions include: Paisajes del límite (with Nico Munuera at the Museo Patio Herreriano in Valladolid, 2019-2020), José Guerrero: 2002- 2020 (Sala Vimcorsa, Córdoba 2020), After the Rainbow (Centro de Arte Alcobendas, Madrid, 2015), After the Rainbow ( Palacio de los Condes de Gabía, Granada, 2013), Efímeros, (Caja San Fernando, Sevilla, 2006).

In 2019 the monograph José Guerrero / Trabajos-Works 02-20 (Ed. UCO + RM) was published, which traces the artist’s career through the series in which his work is structured.

In 2025, the Mapfre Foundation will host a solo exhibition in Madrid and Barcelona that will bring together works from throughout his career.
