About > Team
Founder & Director
Antonio has over 20 years experience within the arts & culture world having started during the 80’s in Valencia, Spain, at an early age as curator and programmer of one the iconic venues of the day in the city, El Comercial, at an incredibly ebullient time for the arts in the country.
For the past 15 years Antonio has lived in London where he has worked for some of the city’s cultural landmarks such as the South London Gallery and Tate Modern. In his capacity as General Manager of the British American Arts Association / Centre for Creative Communities between 2000-2007, Antonio had the opportunity to get know the UK’s cultural scene first hand, which in turn enabled him to shape his lifelong dream to make Spain NOW! a reality.
