Neus Martín Royo

Barcelona, 1968

  • I believe that the painter must defend the right to choose his path,
  • regardless of avant-garde trends or styles.
  • Reality is my best source of inspiration.
  • I would rather represent situations, objects, lived landscapes,
  • of everyday life in a plausible way, than make a work on a mental level,
  • or an invented work.
  • Realism allows me to do more creative work.

His painting is heavily influenced by American painters such as Edward Hopper, one of the greatest exponents of twentieth-century realism, who used light in his paintings in a very particular way. Neus uses colors to distort reality on the canvas in a subjective way, thus increasing beauty and making it more attractive to the viewer.
