Lanzarote, 1985

After completing his studies at the “Pancho Lasso” Art School in Arrecife-Lanzarote, Rigoberto Camacho moved to Madrid where he continued his training and graduated in Fine Arts (2009-2013) and Master of Research in Art and Creation (2014- 2017), both from the Complutense University of Madrid.

He currently works between Madrid and Lanzarote and combines his artistic projects with his work as Professor of the Department of Sculpture at the Faculty of Fine Arts of the UCM. He has obtained different scholarships and residencies, such as: Ayllón artistic production scholarship, where he was awarded the First Prize for Sculpture; International Art Residency El C.A.V La Neomudéjar; International Cannibal Art Residency; CIC EL Almacén RV Residence; o Macro Contemporary Art artistic residency, in Costa Rica, among others.

His public works projects are especially notable, among which the Elegua, La Levantada, Matrona, Dorotea and Roge works located in Lanzarote stand out. He has exhibited in various galleries and Contemporary Art fairs, among others: Lanzarote Art Biennial 2022/2023; CAAM Atlantic Center of Modern Art (Gran Canaria); JustMad (Madrid); Just LX (Lisbon); Joint Fine Arts Exhibition (Shanghai); ArteSantander Fair; The New Fair (Madrid); Braço de Prata Factory (Lisbon); CIC El Almacén (Lanzarote); MARTE Fair (Castellón); María Moreno Room (Barranquilla-Colombia); C.A.V La Neomudéjar Museum (Madrid); o Galria Nacional (Costa Rica).

His work is found in collections, institutions and museums such as: the European Museum of Modern Art MEAM (Barcelona); the Contemporary Museum of Ayllón (Segovia); or the Museum of the Spanish Sports Federation.


Rigoberto's work goes through a creation process that is nourished by the interaction and assimilation of diverse intercultural elements that coexist in our environment. It seeks to create a unique plastic expression - based on a constant exploration of processes and materials linked mainly to the sculptural field, among which 3D printing stands out - and also a committed one, which is born from the complex mix of human relationships and contexts, which They allow us to configure a new anthropological and cultural construct linked to the territory, based on legacy, memory and visual influence.
