Fran Recacha

Spain

Fran Recacha was born in Badalona (Barcelona), Spain, in 1976. He graduated in Arts at the University of Barcelona. He has been a figurative and contemporary painter since 2001 and his paintings are in collections of different countries around the world. His work was exhibited at Spain, France, Italy, England, USA.

As a true poet, Fran Recacha touches our sensibility and imagination. Inspired by mythology, history and legends, he paints ""ideistic"", symbolic and synthetic compositions. The eye revels at precise drawings, the disappearance of brush strokes, the expression of dynamism, energy, movement, or subtle color nuances in the shadows. The imaginary settings composed by Recacha's mind take us to surrealistic scenes and often contribute to a critical (sometimes satirical or humoristic) perspective of contemporary society. The esthetic harmony of his work, hides truths that Recacha subtly explores: the antagonisms that prevail between vice and virtue, the fantastical and the real, collective memory and modernity.
