LAS COSAS QUE NO FUERON TAMBIÉN SON
The image of the 15th edition of Punto de Vista represents the idea of the multiple nature of realities. Dani Sanchis’ contribution comprises five posters that trace new ways of relating with the landscape and with nature, in a year in which so many human and geographical encounters have been prevented. The designs are complemented with a verse from a poem by Joseba Sarrionandia (“Las cosas que no fueron también son”), which served as inspiration and refers to these current times of prohibitions and cancellations, the reconfiguration of spaces and ways of being with others.
Dani Sanchis (Dénia, 1976) founded his independent design, graphic communication and illustration studio in 2002, specialising in the design of posters, books, corporate identities, graphic communication, branding, websites, illustration and collage. Most of his projects are related to the field of culture (film, publishing and press), but he also does work for commercial brands. His chief premises are: coherence, functionality, thorough attention to detail and social responsibility. He understands visual language as an essential and inexhaustible medium of communication. Sanchis bases his life on walking, observing, finding, studying and creating or deciding not to create, as a means of resistance. He combines his work as a graphic designer with that of a visual artist, essentially developing the techniques of collage and assemblage.
