Drawing series - Chancho

drawing 01. 60,5x91 cm. conté on japanese paper

Chancho’s work has always been abstract, and often minimalist. But its variety is astonishing. There is no sense of randomness, or a butterfly mind. Rather, Chancho’s explorations of colour, geometry and shape seem like stopping-points in a life’s journey through different artistic territories, with each being given a proper period of concentration, and each producing its own harvest
Chancho was born Riudoms, Tarragona, Spain, 1943 / He exhibited internationally in galleries and museums worldwide. With exhibitions at La Fundación Joan Miró, el Centre d’Art Santa Mónica, el Museo de Arte Contemporáneo de Ibiza, el Museo de Arte de Tarragona, el Museo Rufino Tamayo, México, and this year, a major retrospective at the Sala Tecla in Hospitalet de Llobregat (Barcelona). His work can be found in the permanent collections of many important institutions, such as the Fundación La Caixa, the Museo de Arte Contemporáneo of Barcelona and the Generalitat de Catalunya
