Pictorial evolution and influences

My artistic evolution can be classified into three 3 major phases, each of them marked by the influence of a particular school. These three stages, in turn, made their own contributions to my current heraldic production:

  • Pop Art: At the beginning of the 1980s, most of my initial work was tuned to the Pop Art. From there comes my interest in the representation of objects, the use of spot and basic colours, the production oriented to its graphic reproduction, the use of mixed techniques and the principles of clarity and cleanliness, so present in my current production. At the end of this stage I start to work on thick, but delicate, coated paper of the base colour of the table on which I apply colours and textures by adding elements of colour or by the destruction of the base itself.
  • Artista03 26 Evolucion jpg Geometric abstraction and abstract expressionism: During the 2nd half of the 80's, my art evolves towards geometric abstraction in the line and to abstract expressionism in the color. Since then I base my painting in the two-dimensionality of the plane, the use of simple shapes, in harmonies with or without symmetries or with apparent symmetries, reinforcing the use of basic colours: yellow, red, blue, sometimes with white as a neutral background and black as a delimiter, which is the purest tradition of Heraldry.
  • Surrealism and symbolism: Both two previous stages converged at the beginning of the 90s with my surreal and symbolic background to produce, during the following two decades, hundreds of automatic painting works in ink and watercolor characterized by a series of personal characteristics. Undoubtedly this evolution marks my current heraldic production. For example, the patterns inside the mantling of my shields are made with the mind of automatic state or the overall assembly of the heraldic work where symbolism is a constant. At this stage I usually use Fabriano paper of 300 grams, usually 100% cotton, liquid ink pens to favor speed, Vallejo (brand) liquid watercolors and, sometimes, as a complement, paste watercolours Winsor & Newton.

Illustration, translation and editing

I am an editor of both literature and technical books, registered in the ISBN Agency of the Spanish Ministry of Culture. I do also work in translation and illustration of key poetry works. Some examples of this activity are:

Artista03 28 der Ruckfall Cover jpg
  • The illustration of "Les Fleurs du Mal" by Charles Baudelaire. I have done 128 pictures for the poems included in the 1861 edition using a mix of techniques on coated paper, which became a first free French edition. There is an upcoming bilingual edition in French and Spanish.
  • Translation of Chinese medieval poetry of the Tang dynasty (centuries VII to X), using a method of translation of Jué jù poems, with metric, but without rhyme, seeking an isomorphism with the original that allows you to associate, using colour schemes, each character in classical Chinese with English and its representation and current Chinese pronunciation. These illustrated translations were published in different issues of the Chinese Economy and Society Observatory (OES China).

In addition, I have authored the cover of «der Rückfall» a magazine of the Technische Universität München and illustrations of the opening chapter of the book «Time's Up; Finding Resonance and Relevance in Revelation» by Bill Albing.
