David Maroto (1976) is a Spanish visual artist based in Rotterdam, The Netherlands. He holds a MFA from the Dutch Art Institute and is currently pursuing a PhD at Edinburgh College of Art.
He has an extensive artistic practice at international level: 11th Havana Biennial; Artium, Museum of contemporary art (Vitoria, Spain); Extra City (Antwerp); S.M.A.K. (Ghent); EFA Project Space (New York), among many other venues.
In 2011 he spent a residency in ISCP New York, where he met curator Joanna Zielinska and began a collaboration in The Book Lovers, a long-term research project on artist's novels with the support of a number of international art organizations: M HKA (Antwerp), de Appel (Amsterdam), Fabra i Coats (Barcelona), Whitechapel Gallery (London), Cricoteka (Krakow) and CCA Ujazdowski Castle Warsaw, among others.
He has published a gamebook called The Wheel of Fortune (2014), an artist's novel where game and novel, two of his main interests, meet in one single form. Recently, he has co-edited Artist Novels, (Sternberg Press, Cricoteka), the first publication to deal with this subject.
