abrigo

2013/September

"Abrigo" is a word that can refer to different meanings. For those who feel sheltered, these letters can provide protection and comfort. It is not directly linked to the house, dwelling, but to a process of interiorization.

In the colorful and expressive canvases of spray and acrylic paint, the artist shows that the act of painting and working the image is placed as its natural habitat and from there the feelings of each character that transcend the lines are born. Mateu talks about refuge, semantics of space, silent habitat. And more infinite definitions.

 

Always combining artistic production with graphic design, so that there is no limit between one technique and another, Mateu reaffirms the nature of graphite as a trademark, a record in the world.
