Since the date of (Sant Jordi) Saint George is close, which is the day that we offer Books as gifts in Catalonia, Josep Puigmarti wants to make everybody the present of this excellent edition that explains his life like a story. 

It is a "story" aimed at all audiences, belonging to the famous collection of "Little Stories", with illustrations by the famous, as well, illustrator Pilarin Bayes

Bayes has illustrated the little stories of discoverers, musicians, inventors, as well as government agencies and important discoveries that have marked the development of our times, as may be the railroad. 

And if we speak about artists that have cemented art history or even today remain vital for understanding the deifferent artistic periods, we can not forget the genius who lives at Hotel Estela Barcelona - Art Hotel in Sitges, the multifaceted Josep Puigmarti.

Josep Puigmarti's New Website - - Sitges


Josep Puigmarti's new website is now active. 

We are pleased to report that the web of the genius who resides and works in Hotel Estela Barcelona - Art Hotel can be visited. 

Puigmarti already has the website that he deserves. A webpage where art lovers can browse among hundreds of artworks and discover those lesser known stages of his extensive production. At this moment, the website is designed in Spanish and English, and it is expected to translate it into different languages. 

As you can imagine, programmers, designers and content managers continue to work on it to always have it updated, but at this point you can see the results. 

The new domain of this page is: 

So all that remains is to:

The Art al Set Gallery from Andorra is holding its tenth anniversary, and to commemorate this outstanding date, has organized an exhibition of paintings by Josep Puigmartí in the common areas of the Andorra Park Hotel.

Josep Puigmartí exhibited at the Art al Set Gallery five years ago. Then, he presented his latest creations gathered under the name of "Big Bang Pearls". Artworks filled with a gesture and spontaneity as primary as the explosion that gave origin to all that is now in the universe.

The artist of Hotel Estela Barcelona - Hotel del Arte features also which is the last of his series: "Remaining". This is a step back to his creations of the 70's and 80's, when he created a unique style of fine erotic surrealism which embodied his beautiful muses that were able to seduce critics and art lovers. However, Puigmartí has never been a supporter of self-plagiarism, so, this new suite incorporates automatisms, gestures and taste for the stain of his later periods. Hence the name chosen for the series, "Remaining" (or Remember), ie what remains from those times, but now mixed with his technique much more direct and unpredictable.

Indeed, his works caused a great feeling to attendees. Including a large number of journalists who could not stop to interview and photograph him.

The following day, every newspaper in the country of the Pyrenees echoed the success of the exhibition, the quality of the artworks and, especially, Puigmarti's charisma and personality, appearing on the front page of El Periòdic d'Andorra or making an appearance in the programme "La Rotonda" from the Andorran television.

These are some of the articles and reports that were published:

Puigmarti Donates a Painting to Millennium Musem - Beijing, China

Event of donation of Puigmartí's artwork in China

We have news about Josep Puigmartí and his exhibition in Beijing.

Our artist and his artworks have caused an superb feeling. Up to the point that before continuing their journey by different museums in China, the Millennium Monument Museum, where the works are now, has decided that Puigmarti becomes part of the permanent works of the museum.

To do this, the genius who lives and works in Hotel Estela Barcelona - Art Hotel in Sitges, has donated one of his paintings. This is a work from his latest suite "Remaining", in which the artist recovers part of his surreal erotic style and iconography mixed with certain areas where he shows his current gesture and spontaneity.

Artwork donated by Puigmartí:

"Flowing Muse", 2012
Series "Remaining"
Mixed media on canvas
60 x 81 cm.

The event was attended by representatives of the Spanish Embassy in Beijing and members of the Department of Culture of China.

Josep Puigmartí could not attend the act of donation, but those who were in the day of the presentation could watch a video recorded by the artist where he excuses his absence and encourages his fans from the eastern country to visit him at his residence in Sitges and to discover his Centre d'Art Contemporain in the French town of Bourg-Madame. In the same video, the artist explains the reasons that led him to choose this artwork to represent him in the art collection of the renowned contemporary art museum in the Chinese capital.

Undoubtedly, this has been an added satisfaction for both Puigmartí himself to all who make up the team of Studio Puigmartí.

The exhibition will close on June 2nd to continue its planned itinerary by other museums. We will inform you promptly of its travel.

Josep Puigmartí, the artistic genius who lives and works in Hotel Estela Barcelona - Art Hotel in Sitges for almost two decades, returns to China.

From Studio Puigmarti, we are pleased to inform about the new exhibition of Josep Puigmartí in China. 7 years have already passed since his artworks visited the eastern country.

This time the starting point will be the impressive China Millennium Monument Contemporary Art Museum of Beijing (Peking). This temple of art is considered the most important museum in China.

This is a traveling exhibition that will visit other museums in the country. It had organizational support from the Institut Ramon Llull and the Generalitat de Catalunya through its Department of Culture and its Councillor Mr. Ferran Mascarell. It also has the support of the Government of China.

The exhibition is entitled "The Story of the Eyes". The opening is scheduled for May 8th at 3.00 pm and it will remain open until June 2nd 2013.

This exhibition is part of the celebrations on the 40th anniversary of relations between China and Spain.

The fact is that in 2005/6, Puigmartí was, already, presented in several museums in China (Shanghai, Guangzhou, etc..) With unprecedented success. His exhibitions were visited by over 40,000 people, leaving a pleasant memory among art lovers in China. As a result of continued work and monitoring relationships with various entities in China, this second series of exhibitions has been achieved.


Since that first contact, we have received countless requests of individuals from eastern country asking or wondering when Puigmarti would return to those distant and beautiful lands. Well, all fans and collectors can once again enjoy Puigmartí's spontaneous gesture, with the added attraction that, this time, the exhibition also includes works from his latest series "Remaining" in which he recovers his famous erotic surrealism from the 70's but with a subtle blend of current gestures. We will also find some of his new sculptures, beautifully crafted.

This exhibition will not end here, since after this first museum there will come others. We will inform you promptly.
