Artist Workshop with Antonio López and Cristóbal Toral for local artists from the CreArt Network
The proposal of this workshop with the Spanish masters of figuration Antonio López and Cristóbal Toral is to deal with different ways of pictorial representation, where the participants will be able to show their interests and ideas, and to work and develop their creative processes close to two of the great artistic references of the Contemporary Realism. This workshop, lasting 5 days, intends to approach the experimentation, the artistic creation, and the improvement of the techniques used by the participant artists, who come from all of over Europe. They will have the opportunity to contrast their work with the expert look of Antonio López and Cristóbal Toral, two of the most representative figures of Spanish Contemporary Art. Along the practice sessions of this workshop, artists from different countries can share in person advices, comment proceedings, research methodologies and enjoy the explanations about their ideas and projects. Specifically, in this workshop the different perspectives from the genres of the figurative tradition as stilllife, portrait and landscape will be explored. Their realistic painting of slow elaboration has the intensity of the research of a philosopher who wants to discover with his refined work the essence of things and, at the same time, he reveals the human anxiety in front of the reality.
