The Sala Parés gallery, which has been around since 1840, is showing art works by Basque painter Quincoces and Barcelona-born Vilàuntil April 26th.
Quincoces is much more than the quintessential painter of mysterious urban landscapes. At the beginning of the Eighties, he abandoned abstraction for objective painting. Although he paints familiar locations, his paintings and graphite drawings show the viewer more than just the place. Through his soft use of colours, the contrast of shapes and use of light, his works are expressive and abstract.
Vilà has always been an independent artist who isn’t influenced by others. Since 1968, the artist’s work has been exhibited in several Spanish cities, the United States, Switzerland, Italy, Germany, France and other European countries. Since 1990, he has exhibited regularly at Sala Parés. His works have also been exhibited in the Museum of Modern Art, New York (MOMA), the Contemporary Art in Madrid, Seville, Bulgaria, and several foundations and private and institutional collections of international renown.
