David Trullo is a visual artist based in Madrid. He was artist in residence at the Museum of Modern Art in Dublin in 2002 and at the Karl Hofer Society, Universität der Kunst Berlin, in 2010. His photo and video artworks deal with the iconographical representation of beauty and the different levels attached to representation, context, reproduction and distribution of images. In all of Trullo’s photographic work, there is a connection with history, with the culture and belief of the Western world, where subjects such as prejudice, intolerance, religion, gender, desire or pain look into the past with a contemporary eye.
