Pintura by Gonzalo Elvira
Born in Patagonia, Argentina in the Seventies, Gonzalo Elvira has been exhibiting his work professionally since 1994. Having lived and worked in Barcelona for the past nine years, his latest series, Pintura, pays homage to the city where he now resides. He begins by taking photos, both at day and night, in the oldest parts of the city, up towards Gràcia. With these photos, he creates paintings, using smokey greens, reds and blues, reflecting light and shadows and different stages of the day.
