Spanish artists at TOAF 2017
5 Oct 2017 - 8 Oct 2017|
Old Truman Brewery|
The Other Art Fair is an artist platform that in each edition showcases work by a selection of talented creators handpicked by a committee of art industry experts.
Two Spanish artists exhibit their most recent work this year: Susana Lopez Fernandez and Francisco Jose Jimenez
Susana López F., a visual artist from Gijon, studied Fine Arts at Barcelona University, from where she also holds a PhD. Soon after, she travelled to London and New York to complete her studies. Susana’s artistic focus explores how the surface of the photograph is a modern day canvas to capture the ‘routine’, and transform it into something exceptional, capturing the unnoticed aspects of city life that we all often are too busy to notice.
Francisco José Jiménez, born in 1987 in Jerez de la Frontera, studied Fine Arts at the Complutense University of Madrid. His attraction by the beauty of the human body dates from this period when he painted his first nudes in oil with different types of textures and materials along with a strong influence from the artist Antonio Tapies.
Later, he moved to London where he has created paintings with a more pronounced nostalgic vision, influenced by British artist Lucian Freud for whom he feels great admiration.
