Eudald de Juana Gorriz was born in 1988 to a family of sculptors in a small town close to Girona (Spain), where, surrounded by an artistic and natural environment , he learned the trade and developed a deep interest for art.

At 19 he began his formal studies in Fine Art and explored many different artistic disciplines at the Barcelona University (UB), generally using the human form as a departing point for his ideas, as he considers it a great tool to express emotions and engage with the viewers.

Upon graduation in 2012, Eudald moved to Florence to focus his training in academic sculpture and drawing at the Florence Academy of Art. Here he was able to pursue his interest in the representation of human figure in the naturalist style based on the tradition of 19th century french and italian academies. 

 

After the studies he became principal instructor in sculpture and drawing in the Florence Academy. 

 

After 3 years of teaching regularly, in 2018 he decided to move back to Figueres (Spain), to begin a new project, with the painter Pau Marinel·lo, called Geode Art Space, a creative place with studios, gallery and workshops for artists, all surrounded by nature. 

 

Eudald works mainly with private commissions. His works can be found in private collections in countries like The US, Canada, UK, Italy, Spain, Austria, France, Germany, Kuwait, Hong Kong.

 

In 2014 he did a Monument of Carles Rahola in the town of Cadaqués, in 2017 did a monument of the composer Manuel Blancafort that's on display in one of the most emblematic building of catalan history, Palau De La Música Catalana, in Barcelona. 

 

His works also can be seen in the permanent collection of the Museu d'Art Modern in Barcelona (MEAM).
