Txomin Badiola (Bilbao, 1957) is an artist with an extensive career in the field of visual arts. His work has been the subject of several retrospectives, the latest in 2016 at the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía in Madrid. He has combined his practice with curatorial and teaching work, such as those carried out at the Arteleku art centre and MUSAC's Primer Proforma programme. He is the author of "Oteiza. Catalogue raisonné of sculpture", published by the Oteiza Museum Foundation. This is his first novel.
