Jesús M. Chamizo. I am passionate about architecture, and in my pictures I always try to go further. I let me be seduced by the space, I try to feel sensations, which then transmit through perspectives, angles, frames... Lines, curves, shapes and light, take us to that particular universe of architecture, through emotions.

The Instituto Cervantes in Chicago will feature an exhibition on Thursday organized by l'Artban, an art consultancy company that represents contemporary visual artists, which coincides with the events of the Chicago Biennale.. L'Artban's mission is to impart knowledge about contemporary art and show the importance of visual arts in the contemporary society.
Jesús Chamizo is an established Spanish photographer best known for his architecture series. This exhibition consists of 12 photographs capturing the constructions of the Spanish architect Antonio Palacios who created the most emblematic buildings in Madrid and transformed the city into a modern capital during the early 20th Century. The eclectic style of the architect Antonio Palacios, who combined elements from the Plateresco, The Vienna Secession and the School of Chicago is what really attracts the photographer.
