Art Madrid'23 – Francisco Mayor Maestre
Francisco Mayor Maestre
The childhood and adolescence of Francisco Mayor Maestre in Rivas-Vaciamadrid was marked by daily trips to the capital in which he observed the changes in the landscape and the identical gray buildings on the margins of the city. The contrast between those indifferent worker architectures and the small touches of color and personality that can be glimpsed as manifestations of the people who live inside, lead him to dedicate his production to the transformation of these cold facades. His oil paintings flood the whole of color, of excessive vegetation, of impossible planes that break the figuration of the work. It highlights curtains, awnings, laundry, air conditioners ... in an investigation about the freedom of painting, the exploration of spaces and the claim of individuality.
