Pako Quijada is a multidisciplinary artist, predominantly working with photography and film. They studied Photography and Filmmaking in San Sebastián, Spain. 
Their work explores the psychological gravitas of emotions and the construction of memory. With cinema as a constant referent, their work mixes magic and the surreal with the lived experience, eventually bringing existential questions to the forefront. Analytical in its approach, but visceral in its result, their artistic output places inherently political and highly personal topics into a universal arena. 
They are currently living and working in Berlin, Germany.
