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.

Its neighborhood of Poblenou in full transformation, the Barcelona of the shops and bars of other times that still endure, the old buildings of Havana, the lighthouses of Menorca that resist the onslaught of the winds or the wide spaces that belong to no one, located on the border of the urban … they have always been the favorite themes of Neus Martín Royo. Places that become small heroes with a soul, vestiges of the past that with their real and mysterious presence, close, nothing disturbing, they gain our empathy and invite us to enter the picture.

They are places that she has internalized and humanized through her emotional filter and from which she wants to take special care so that time does not take them away. It is as if he wanted to fix in the painting the memory that he keeps of them.

The absence of the human figure contributes to create an atmosphere of serenity, silence and loneliness.

It is expressed in a very personal language based on a visible brushwork applied to a first drawing made with charcoal. The transparency with which he works allows him to maintain the initial black stroke when he wants to accentuate certain shadow spaces or some profiles. Create atmospheres of light of “Hopperian” influence to accentuate the mysterious character of the scene and use a certain tonality of warm, but contrasting colors that allude to the passage of time.
