Aythamy Armas García, Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, 1977.

Bachelor of Fine Arts from the University of La Laguna.

Last course held at the Academy of Fine Arts in Rome (specialty in painting). He works and lives in Barcelona since 2003. His personal work is focused on drawing and painting.

Trying to remove the theoretical halo of abstraction, a formal level, find in it the synthesis, the vital of what surrounds us. We find in this direction another way to understand and relate to our environment, to decipher it and transcribe it in a subjective way about the support.

I come from a work route mainly in figurative, fetishistic, highly recognizable and very little interpretable images. The objective figuration.

In this new task there is not only attempt to synthesize under my codes and references that are the many shared. There is also a confluence with formal, gestural and compositional cleanliness. The austerity with the means of work, the connection with the essential. In this search for the primary, the encounter with the pencil and its nuances. In that infinite world I build.

In this search for the primary, the encounter with the fabric and its textures. In that infinite world I enjoy myself.

In the game of the geometric, in the straight line that the horizon draws not only the base of the perspective, of the depth, but also a vanishing point that is this case for me, it is hope. The formal and material austerity, the tonal progression as a point and encounter where to rest the gaze and expand the subconscious.
