  • About the artwork

    Artwork sold in perfect condition

    Francisco's work explores the concepts of landscape and reality, heavily referencing Magritte and other surrealist. He layers mysterious atmospheres to the reality of nature, with geometric forms interrelated to the existing landscape. Francisco's work is also characterized by mixing, or rather uniting concepts opposed to each other at first glance, but based on scrutinizing, observing and analyzing them has proven that they are not so different from each other.

    His work has been shown in Reina Sofía Museum of Madrid, Royal Academy of London, Arco Madrid, Pinta Art Fair, London, London Art Fair, The Other Art Fair, London, and in numerous art galleries from London, Madrid, Barcelona and Paris.

Francisco Nicolás

Spain

Since his childhood, he already showed a great interest in the visual arts. In his youth, he left his hometown, to move to Barcelona, doing studies and obtaining his degree in the Faculty of Fine Arts of Barcelona, combining with the learning of the engraving technique at Le Ecole Nationale et Superiore des Beaux Arts in Paris.

He began his exhibition career in Barcelona at the hand of Alejandro Sales Art Gallery, since then made numerous national and international exhibitions, and having resided in London for the past six years.

In Francisco Nicolás, there is one common way in his whole art career. The dual concept is very present in his artwork since the very beginning.

During 80/90's Francisco's work was inspired on the neoplasticism, but far away of the cold concept of this, he mixed the coldness of the geometrical abstraction with a mild expressionism.

Between 2010/2011, after 10 years without painting, he started a new process mixing the landscape with geometrical shapes, mixing opposite concepts such as the figurative /abstract or classical /contemporary.

In 2016, the process of Francisco Nicolás came to an end because his art practice can be considered as a research process, where I do research about the relationship between different shapes and concepts.

The old practice was over, therefore he started a new one using only abstract elements and mixing both opposite concepts like the geometry and the expresionism showing up the idea of mixing both opposite concepts in the Art History (the Apollonian and the Dyonisiac).

And currently, he has added a figurative element like the birds interacting each other.

Francisco's work is in important collections as:
