Lluís Comín

Home / Lluís Comín

Lluís Comín Vilajosana was born in Barcelona on November 14, 1958. Since his youth he has been interested in jewellery, learning the craft of goldsmithing in his father’s jewellery workshop. Later he graduated in Gemmology with a specialization in diamonds at the University of Barcelona, at the Gemological Association of Great Britain and in Jewellery at the Massana School. In the art jewels of Lluís Comín you can appreciate the inspiration based on universal myths and overwhelming and intimate influences of nature. The artist’s statement “Over the years, intuition has become a form of intelligence” clearly reflects the combination that can be found in each of the creator’s works of art: respect for tradition, experience, artistic skill and creative impulse. The artist’s love for his land, Barcelona, and the mountains can be found in each of his creations, where natural elements are often included, such as Montjuic’s Jasper in the Barcino collection, or the Reconstructions collection.
