MAESTRAZGO (ARAGÓN, SPAIN) 1944 - LA CARDOSA (CATALUÑA, SPAIN) 2018
The artists of the future have understood that art, the knowledge of ourselves, knowing who we are, what we do, where we are going, looking for a reason to exist, went beyond specialization.
We have created images without borders that allow us to unite them, as if they were a map and as if that union formed the understanding of a continent. The style is fragmented to achieve a larger unity that monopolizes the plural and gives way to the new understanding of singularity. It bursts when it is very compressed.
As an artist of the future, I am not part of any generation. Nor any group or institution. And not being a specialist, I use emotion, and I subordinate style to thought.
I have done all my work on the sidelines, outside the stablishment and therefore I have made my own art.
I have made a commitment: my work will NOT be used by politicians, flag wavers or any group that seeks to appropriate it for its own purposes.
I don't paint for everyone, but for an international community.
I am a thinker who paints.

Trailer for the documentary film Winter Journey (Adiós) by Anna Sanmartí, produced by Nanouk Films, BAS and Suica Films (2019)
The nomad knows that the future is built in the present. He can love without the forced need to possess. He clings to moments and memories, and uses them as sculpture. If memories are, they happen in a moment and invade you, they can be light for painting. Art builds your life and your memory.
