Enrique Radigales is an artist based in Madrid, Spain. He works with HTML programming, installations and drawing techniques to explore the border between the digital and the analogue worlds. By doing so, he creates an ever-increasing field that allows him to comment on the technological progress as a reflection of the social and financial evolution, and therefore the relationships between temporality and technology.

Enrique studied painting at Escola Massana in Barcelona and graduated from the Interactive Systems program at UPC University, Barcelona, in 1996.

His work has been shown individually in international museums and cultural centers, such as MIS (São Paulo), Instituto Cervantes (Bordeaux) or La Casa Encendida (Madrid), and has participated in several biennials as WRO 2011 (Wroclaw, Poland), Biennial IEEB4 (Sibiu, Romania) or Biennal Electrohype (Ystad, Sweden).
