Victor otero Carbonell, Barcelona, 1985.  


Self-taught artist, his drawings, watercolors and oils find a balance between figurative expressionism and realism. 

Otero shows us through the portraiture, the fragile world inside ourselves, where melancholie, fragility and tenderness is showed up in the privacy of our loneliness. That is where the existentialism of the human being becomes the main theme in the work of the artist.  

"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.”
