Alejos Lorenzo

(Spain)

 

Born in Ferrol, Spain, 1975.

Self-taught painter.

Technical Architect.

Graduate in interior design.

Technician in industrial design.

 

     In the paintings of Alejos we can see influences of various stylistic trends, such as pop art,

Post-Impressionism, and Japanese ukiyo-e. They are spots of pure, distinct colors, playing

together harmoniously creating subtle landscapes. The works bring back memories of past

masters including 19th-century Japanese ukiyo-e artists Hiroshige and Hokusai, as well as

the colorful landscapes of European artists Henri Matisse, Paul Gauguin and Vincent van

Gogh. Alejos’ colorful, reductionist geometric forms also elicit the verdant landscapes of

20th century pop artist David Hockney.

     "It is primarily a lyrical, imaginative, lively, evocative and particularly striking painting, with which this artist reminds us that art is above all creation, interpretation, not a simple copy of reality, emphasizing that the world must represented, not only as it is, but also how it feels".

Carlos Barcón, art critic, member of the Royal Galician Academy of Fine Arts

 

     "Alejos exacerbates the color of nature to go beyond the limit of realistic figuration, plunging us into a world of Technicolor fantasy. However, despite the chromatic affinity with the Fauves, his landscapes are at ease, close to induce a contemplative zen state, which

Approximates their vision to the pictorial tradition of Japanese ukiyo-e style.

Decorativism opens the way to the spiritual, as we already taught the Nabis painters, but

Alejos not need to resort to exotic lands or Haitian primitivism to venture into the purity of the pigment and the essentiality of shapes. It places us in space and time without no past."

Anna Adell, art critic

 

Artist Statement

     Since childhood, about 5-6 years old, I have always felt the strange need to draw and paint.

Drawing shapes with one simple pencil and then filling them with colors attracted me like a

magnet, like that magical music that you don't want to stop listening to. At the beginning it was a mixture of different feelings, some good and others as a way of escape and to wort off my ills. I know now art is a kind of therapy too.

 

     With the passage of time I have been understanding, as mother nature was becoming the

main protagonist of my work, that there is nothing better than transmitting the love I feel for this nature (reflected in my family and in music too) that helps me so much. That is why I think that my painting is an attempt to explain this love that I feel for them, which is no

different than love for life, for all living beings. And I think I'm getting it through the game of simple shapes and vivid colors. What you see it isn´t a "real" nature, it´s what I call a dreamed landscape", that is not an exact copy of a specific place or a photograph, but it is more the feeling that nature (walking its landscapes with my family at weekends or holidays, studying another painters´ artworks, seeing photos at magazines, or surfing by the net, etc) or music transmits me, that I represent in the canvas in a symbolic way.

 

     Lorenzo’s work has been in select Exhibitions in Barcelona, Madrid, Marbella, Ibiza, Lisbon, Milan, London, New York and the Beijing Art Fair in China.. Jones & Terwilliger Galleries are proud to represent his paintings in our Palm Desert location.
