Student Testimonials:

"Never thought my first ever solo exhibition and performance would be in Barcelona. Thanks to the free spirit of Estudio Nómada, I was able to passionately experiment with my life, art and self. The process and outcome were extraordinary. To be honest, I don’t think the brilliant blossom would have happened this way if I were not with the Nómadas in the city of Barcelona. All the interaction with the artists, students, and the space gave me enormous inspiration to create.

This is a life-transforming experience I will never forget – a milestone for my whole being. No matter where I am in the future, the unique Nómada community will always have a piece of my heart."

"For quite a while my work in my studio was about longing and traveling. When I got the chance to go to Estudio Nómada in Barcelona I didn’t hesitate. In 2009 I worked there for a month. I found a nice appartment and settled in one of the beautiful wokshops in Estudio Nómada.

The fact that everything would change for me was exactly what I needed. A new working place, new artists surrounding me, a new scenery and all this amidst a city extremely diverse, that offers much but most of all gives you an immense boost. Only the walk from my apartment, through the barrio Gotico to Estudio Nómada, was a nice inspiring stroll to kick-off my working day. The new things around me gave me a lot of movement. I experienced Estudio Nómada as a pleasant and welcome place tucked away in the prettiest alley of Barcelona, with owners Iris and Arnout as a dynamic ‘captains-couple’.
