Artist of the week - Marcos Terol
Marcos graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Economics and has studied painting in Madrid. For more than 10 years he worked as an interior designer which are the foundations for his career in painting. He loves contemporary artists like David Hockney or Alex Katz but is inspired by classics like John Singer Sargent or Joaquin Sorolla. His painting is spontaneous and instinctively he expresses his strong emotions through his heavy impasto or delicate transparencies.
Drawing from previous styles he uses colour and textures to define strong contrasts between light and shadow. He focuses on the nature that surrounds him, urban landscapes and figures. One could describe his work as “Contemporary Expressionism”. Marcos´s paintings are sold worldwide and have been shown in one-man shows in Miami and Madrid.
