On the run from the Spanish fascists, Gustavo discovers Berlin. First through invitations of the “Berlin Festival Weeks”, later in the 70’s because of his second wife Regine. He stays nearly 20 years and leaves his marks in the city: through important and attracting exhibitions he is still known in Berlin and its habitants nowadays. From here, his career starts to spread throughout Germany and develops internationally. He wallows in the grotesque, slapstick and the poetically abstract titles of his artwork.
