With Raul, Gesture is the key element of his works. Instinct, speed, color, emotional dirtying, passionate streaks, hugs of the brushstrokes.
The vision of Raul this young artist from Pescara is pervaded by a variety of sensations which stretch the brain with a pincer, give gooseflesh with a shake, let swell with a cold shower and reflect the idea of infinite emerging from the encounter with the other and his face.
Raul paints with a primitive speed since his painting is a way to materialize an emotion.
Thoughts are free in the stretch of traveller and artist: Primordial and instinctive repeats of gestures highlighting the view of an entrapped mankind. Fear to acknowledge what we really are, aspirational thoughts and mental projections erecting barriers in a dialectic of the absurd, between individuality and super-personal codes, conjectures materialising geometric and irregular shapes, circumscribed by lines and colours. Simple, rapid and material gestures…expressions of tact.
Drops infect the ether.
Hotels host people, thoughts, words, limits
Raul: Everything is Art
So his faces belong to people he meets in his travels, the streaks are the streets he walks, the marker strokes are thoughts taking a place without support. Then, that visceral connection with music, that is all, wraps him, it’s everywhere.
He is an artist born in Pescara (1980) but a citizen of the world and he works between Pescara, London and Miami. After the Bachelor’s degree in Communication Sciences he begins to develop his passion for art, painting on any material he found in his innumerable travels. From walls to paper, from glass to plastic, from newspaper to lined notebooks used in schools, anything is possible for Raul if the surface permits it.
