Bio

Víctor López-Rua was trained in Spain and Italy, and is already, in the words of the Spanish critic Juan Manuel Bonet, one of the most particular voices in the field of Spanish figurative painting. López-Rua is committed to the thematic and compositional renewal of the eternal and incombustible language of painting, always from a perspective of investigation, search, and deepening diverse realities.
López-Rúa is qualified by the doctor in Art History and ABC critic, Francisco Carpio, as a painter-painter, that is, a painter with a trade, a trade of lights, and with the benefit of colors, space, sensitivity, and matter. His painting is linked in certain strategies to the New German Objectivity and cinema, which leads us to highlight his constant recurrence to the narrative of the presence that literature has in his plastic work, but also its high dreamlike and surreal temperature; Luis Alberto de Cuenca writes about this: “Few plastic artists exist in Spain today capable of creating pictorial spaces as loaded with disturbing strangeness as his own.”
