71 Promenade

Javier’s painting is closely related to the sea and the light. It is a symbolist, surrealist approach to tell stories and evoke memories.

"Your painting belongs to the world of the real, to those parallel worlds that surround us, but which they say we don't see, and if we do see them it's better not to notice them. False, because both painting and poetry are the evidence that those worlds exist and are more authentic than the realities imposed on us. "The crack in the canvas"." Paco Aragón
