I COULDN'T FIND YOU AND HAD TO LOOK FOR THE LIGHT IN THE SUN

Javier Ruiz Pérez

Info: Javier’s work is a lyrical poem in its aesthetic plenitude. In his work each composition is shaped from the gesture and the desire to explore human nature with the purest emotional plastic. The appearance of dead nature but brimming with life, his pieces show human passions, feelings and vital reflections, contorted in the midst of landscapes harmonies. Javier Ruiz Pérez (b. 1989) studies, learning and years of searching are left behind to talk about this young painter who feeds on contemporaneity to generate a vital reflection. His work is characterized by showing from the figurative scenography of his compositions and the expressive force of his painting, human behavior and internal drives that plague our existence. His romantic and decadent atmospheres allow us to approach the most lascivious human instincts, works of addictive character that are mitigated thanks to nature as regent in each of his compositions.
