Ryan Opaz, Terrassa, Spain Member Since September 2007 Artist Statement Grew up in Minnetonka, Minnesota. Spent a year in Brasil, a few months in Belize, Norway and another year in Portland, Oregon. Went to school in Moorhead(next door to Fargo, ND), Minnesota. Have a degree in sculpture and painting. Spent a couple years running an art school, and teaching. Then a year in a butcher shop, which led to 2 years working as a chef at a ladies gym. Followed this by 3 years running a wine shop, that happened to specialize in beer(1200 labels), bourbon, and amazing wines. Finally married a girl from Chicago, and moved to Spain, Madrid to start. A year and half later we moved to Barcelona, where we run an Internet Marketing Company that deals exclusively with Iberian Wineries. We have 2 cats, drink wine every night, dine out with friends, and travel to wineries in the countryside of Spain for work and rarely pleasure, though I never said work was that bad. Love to eat, travel, hike, camp, hang out with friends and take lot's of pictures.
