About

Graduated in Art at the University of the Basque Country and mastered in research in art and design at
the Autonomous University of Barcelona.
His artistic practice around the «bureaucratic plasticity», understanding its relationship with the
system as an aesthetic problem.

In his first stage, he worked on projects subsidized by institutions through grants and university
through grants and university agreements, but it was not until 2019 when he decided to disengage from this voracious to disengage himself from this maelstrom that was dragging him towards the most absolute precariousness and to take another and to opt for another path.

This consciously defeatist attitude was the cause of making him stand out for his peculiar way of creating narratives, using his his peculiar way of creating narratives, using criticism and cynicism as a means of presentation.

David Macho went from being an innocent being with illusion to an art mercenary with humor.

Since then he has been working on a more personal project, making commissions for celebrities
for celebrities, or as he likes to call them: the contemporary court; among whom are Neil Harbinson, Luis Venegas, Paloma Wool, Rigoberta Bandini, Stacy Wall Bandini, Stacy Wall or Rosalia.

One of his most famous collaborations was a campaign for Gucci in which several artists from around the world participated.
