Seba Kurtis born in Argentina, 1974 grew up in Buenos Aires under a violent and bloody dictatorship regime. He studied journalism and was a political activist. In 2001, Argentina fell under economical and political crisis, unemployment rocketed, banks restricted access to money and chaos developed in the streets.
He left for Europe and remained in Spain as an illegal immigrant for over 5 years. This experience became the main inspiration for his work, an exploration
of the dynamics behind irregular migration and the resultant impact on culture, society and the individual.
