JORDI PRAT PONS

  • ARTIST'S BIOGRAPHY

    “I paint with paper:  I tear them,  I let them get old,  I dirty them,  I mix them,  and when I arrive to what I want to achieve,  I give them their  place in the canvas,  I give them the importance that I have been looking for.  I love to reproduce what I have around me, near me:  bottle caps,  drink cans,  bottles, posters... all those objects that we look at everyday, and which are a window through which our feelings take a trip to the past. To finish a painting produces in me a sense of release, but at the same time it pushes me to start a new one”

     

    It is hard not to be captivated by the joyous and luminescent collage paintings by this artist. His work finds its roots in the Abstract Expressionism and Pop Art of the 20th Century. The result let us enjoy a perfect synthesis of these important Art Schools.

     

    Working exclusively in the technique of oil and collage on canvas, Prat Pons finds in the streets of Barcelona the main source for his creations. He takes downs and utilizes the posters that advertise events (after these have passed) tears the paper to various sizes, rearranges them on the canvas and then he creates the themes that he is well known for: the recreation of aligned bottles of wine and liquor, and most recently the tributes to classic artists such as Da Vinci, Lautrec, Velazquez, Modigliani, Rembrandt and others.
