ABOUT

Eccentric characters, disguised as normal, within everyday scenes, is the predilection of this painter. Expressive faces and a certain sarcasm also hide love, yes, you read that right.

 

Lupo began to take painting seriously in 2014, painting countless works on paper, finding his way of expression in the figurative and using oil mainly for this, although he has many works in gouache and acrylic. Which is the message? of course, to portray the complex psychology of modern life but in traditional settings, sometimes very far from the idea that we can have today of modernity. Perhaps the intention is that these works last over time.

 

Lupo is sometimes very surreal but he often uses earthy colors and tones, old, because one of his influences is also the baroque era like so many others. He began clearly influenced by German expressionism, but now he likes Goya a lot, so he offers us all this set of feelings without choking and as if it were the most natural thing in the world.


Lupo, who only signs with the word 'Sol', does not lavish much on exhibitions or shows beyond the Internet, although he is still open to other stimuli. He thinks that he still has a lot to tell and to shout, sometimes with anger, others with love, but never with indifference.
