Julián Calatrava
The Artist :
The work of Julian Calatrava is characterised by a very specific style of representation, inspired by trends in graphic design and colour, where the structure revolves around the human figure, prompting us to consider the human being both as an individual and as a link in the fabric of society. The artist employs a language similar to that used in comics to tackle this theme.


Gallery :


Characterised by a fluid line, his work reduces the form to its most elementary expression, with a preference for flat shades defined by line and volume, alternating areas composed of large reliefs with others containing imperceptible strokes.

Focusing primarily on urban environments, his work seeks to be a reflection of the exceptional in daily life, where the figures interact silently, against a background which fluctuates between reality and dream world. A world which appears to be full of the accessories and gadgets which are a part of our daily lives, and which are used as narrative elements in the creation of a visual and artistic experience.
