Intro
Born in Medellin, Colombia in the early 70’s, artist Nicolas Estrada has lived and worked as a jeweller in the city of Barcelona since 2000. Raised amidst a period of great social conflict, Nicolas draws upon the memories of his youth, pursuing a recurrent reflection throughout his work. Recently, Nicolas has published two books: New Rings: 500+ designs from around the world, and New Earrings: 500+ designs from around the world, 2016 he will publish New Necklaces: 500+ designs from around the world and an updated version of his first book and commercial success, New Rings. After earning the MFA in July 2015 from Hochschule Trier, Campus Idar-Oberstein he returned to Barcelona and re-opened his Studio Workshop to continue on working in precious stone cutting and art- jewellery. At the moment, Nicolas operates as a high-end art-jeweller under his own name, preferring to trade his commercial jewellery under the name of his brand, Amarillo Joyas.

Statement

In Nicolas Estrada, we find an artist with his own voice and definition.  His artistic direction comes from a deep foundation of fine irony mixed with a profound sense of reflection.  Nicolas is a jeweler that is respectful of his sources of inspiration.  He is a passionate artisan, always seeking new interpretations to the mundane and looking to distance himself from the simple world of artistic merchandise.  He finds creativity in the unstoppable instinct of movement.  The fluidity of this instinct has led him to dominate technique in its most variable and subtle aspects.
