Josep Bonet Subirats
I was born in Manlleu (Barcelona) in the summer of 1965. As a child I began to be curious about everything that referred to art. In fact, my dad was a fan of it, and the walls of his house were filled with paint. I had a strong attraction to the visual arts and other artistic disciplines, although music occupied my teenage years.
I started my studies in Applied Arts at the Llotja de Barcelona, specializing in advertising drawing. However, over time, my attraction to painting grew, and I have never stopped painting.
My work is based on a reality that is falling apart and distorted throughout the creative process, but at the same time it has a definite and easy-to-understand outline, following my first impression of reality. Any time is good to look for an idea; walking down the street, having a coffee, staring at the rhythm and movement of the everyday scenes. A strong connection is established with the environment around me in shapes, colors, contrasts ... This is where my sources of inspiration flow.
I have exhibited and continue to do so in Catalonia, in the rest of Spain and in different places abroad. My work is part of many private collections around the world.
