Víctor Otero Carbonell

Barcelona, 1985.

Victor Otero Carbonell  is a Spanish self taught painter whose distinctive melancholic works bounce between realism and figurative expressionism. Carbonell’s works can be described as melancholic, introspective and emotional, they are a dive into human beings feelings and psyche.

“When I was a teenager, I started painting self portraits as a tool to psychologically understand myself better, and that’s a practice I keep doing since then.

For more than twenty years, painting has become my personal diary.”
