Riudoms (Tarragona), 1943
Joaquim Chancho is one of the fundamental painters of contemporary Catalan culture. His work, linked to abstraction, is defined by an intense study that starts with silence, geometry and natural cycles. His career during forty years of dedication is a model of coherence, conceptual rigour and mastery of technical resources. This has materialized in numerous solo exhibitions, important group exhibitions, publications, and presence in collections and museums, including the MACBA and the Joan Miró Foundation (Barcelona), the Art Center Berlin Friedrichstrasse, the National Museum of Korea, in Seoul, and the Tamayo Museum in Mexico.
