Arnau Puig was a wise man, in the maximum extension of the word. A lucid philosopher who observed life and art from thought, both through study-based erudition, intelligent and precise knowledge, and through all the experiences he had during his long life. Maybe that’s why everything he did was immense, full of nuances, round trips to all those essential references to understand reality. He never gave up on complexity, always at the right distance: close enough to be a committed agent of the art world, and far enough away to keep his own perspective.
Her overflowing passion and conviction were as contagious as her laughter. He always wanted to learn and so he kept himself on the front line, thinking, studying, participating and, above all, doing. He was behind almost all the initiatives that emerged in Barcelona. He lived with several generations, both that of those who preceded him and his (he will always be remembered as a central character in Dau al Set) and, above all, that of the youngest. With all of us who followed the path he had marked out for us, he was a generous accomplice. From his rigor and knowledge, he fed with his comments, his critical texts and, ultimately, with all his work a world of art that will always remember him. .
