Victor Otero Carbonell, 1985 Montornés del Vallés (Barcelona)
Self-taught artist, his drawings, watercolors and oils are between figurative expressionism and realism.
Otero shows us through the portrait melancholic, fragile, timid and introspective beings, that make us think of the existentialism of the human being, the main theme in the work of the artist.
“My most principal motivation is to understand better the other people, and learn something new of them every day. That’s why the principal theme on my paintings is the human figure, I love how much can express a little movement on a face or in the body, sometimes you can know more about someone for their micro expressions than for their words.
When you have someone in front of you posing for a painting, this person is showing everything of himself, his passions, his fears, his humanity, etc., and as a painter you must be able to read those expressions on his face and show them on the canvas.”
