Ferran Vidal

A law graduate who has studied art theory at the MACBA (Bcn) and is artistically self-taught. As a plastic artist, he has established a multidisciplinary career in which he has mainly explored drawing, painting and sculpture. He has shown at various galleries in Barcelona incuding N2. Lassaletta, La Santa, Atelier, Montoriol and Francesc Mestre as well as several exhibitions in Barcelona’s surrounding area. He has also illustrated books and published graphic novels. In addition, he has participated in ArtMadrid, provided the illustrations to Barcelona Science Museum’s Civilized Matter Room, published illustrations in El Pais and La Vanguardia newspapers, showed his work in two collectives at former [email protected], NYC, and is a member of The Viewing Program at The Drawing Center, NYC.

He is a prolific and versatile artist who has developed not only his own personal aesthetics, but also a symbolic and conceptual world that portrays a style where academicism merges with an almost wild gestuality, creating a force and speed that balances with an accurate planning of the composition. He is constantly innovating to expand his use of materials and treatment, and he takes informalism to new figurative limits and angles of thought, challenging our perception and offering a window into a realm beyond that which meets the eye. His palette is coherent and displays a fierce use of color, usually austere and of an absolute protagonism.

Through his own personal characters, scenes, and landscapes, with one foot in reality and the other in complete mystery, he projects ideas and visions that dialogue constantly between the artist’s inner world and the multitude of cultural references that nourishes it.
