Art Madrid'23 – Ismael Lagares
Ismael Lagares is one of the artists of his generation with greater national and international projection. His abstract canvases are an explosion of colour in which the combination of techniques and graffiti and informalist influences are translated into compositions full of matter and exquisite balance. The counterpoint to these colourful works comes with the recent introduction of monochrome paintings, in which a single colour dominates the entire composition, giving even greater importance to the interplay of densities of oil and ceramic. The ceramic itself takes more and more prominence, creating outdoor works on aluminium and completely abandoning the support to become free-standing sculptures.
