    "I've been learning to paint all my life, everything that is alive, everything I've seen, what has been recorded, what has been forgotten, everything has been for and for trying to be a painter, illustrator and illustrator. (...) One paints because it is a way of assimilating reality, of measuring it, of placing it in your head. Painting is fundamentally an act of situating the outside world using your senses. That is why art is above all a spiritual, religious fact, because it is contemplation, meditation and execution. Learn and narrate what you have learned. Art is a state of grace in which you seek a harmony with life and plasmas with more or less skill."

    Javier Montesol, born in 1952, around 52 years of experience in fine art. Spanish painter from Barcelona.
