Josep Domenech Sanchez was born in Barcelona in 1952 and comes from a working-class family. His father and grandfather had a little carpenter's workshop in the center of Barcelona. Josep, therefore, grew up in between the wood, furniture, glue, sandpaper, and varnishes used in the workshop. This workshop has been the principal source of economy for his family since 1989."
"Although I studied, like all the other children in Spain in the 1950s, all my education was directed to the carpentry trade, following in the family tradition. But I have to say my passions were for art and design and I was not very good at Mathematics and other subjects. I took drawing lessons (Technical design) from a private teacher who was a close friend of my father and had in fact taught my father painting when he was younger. He too had a love for the subject. My father had painted at least thirty canvasses and I remember as a child how we used to visit the exhibitions on Sunday evenings to see his work. This was as routine as our weekly Sunday evening family walk.

"What do I want to express with my work?
Well, I always try to go deeply into myself, searching for the equilibrium, the simplicity - to show just the basic element. I express myself through objects, elements, figures, different situations, feelings, balance, meditation, and self-reflection."
