the Artist Javier
I paint free and spontaneously. My art is created through intuitive responses while engaged in the creative process. Through my art i try to provoke an emotional response. My paintings are like dreams, memories, places or things unseen yet vaguely familiar. My art is based on the experimentation and contamination of styles, techniques and materials.
