Ivan de la Rionda (1966)

 

Bibliography

 

Cuban artist, naturalized Spanish citizen for over 20 years, he has been working in his studio in Brittany at Le Faou for 5 years.

 

Trained and graduated from the University of Fine Arts in Havana, he works with all mediums and formats: oil, acrylic, pastel, ink. The gesture is at the heart of his work: fluid, fast, impulsive, lines, shadows, and colors take shape. His artistic journey over the years has led him from figurative to abstract. Emerging is a vision.

 

By taking a poetic look at the details of daily life, the body, nature, animals, and dance, the movement is captured in the intensity of his sole desire: to paint.

 

For this, he leaps into the void in search of the essential, which is none other than the disappearance of the visible. The object is replaced by forms that suggest a metaphorical message.
