Xurxo Gómez-Chao, works on sale
A Coruña, 1960
Xurxo Gómez-Chao's career has evolved from his beginnings in painting to his latest works, in which photography has become his fundamental means of expression. Through elements found in his daily reality, he manages to create a suggestive new and independent work, with nature as the protagonist, in which he reflects his inspiration in classical culture and the history of art. A graduate of Fine Arts from the Faculty of San Carlos in Valencia, his artistic training includes his move to Paris to study with Pierre Carron at the École Nationale Superieure des Beaux-Arts. He has an extensive career and is a key exponent of contemporary Galician art, with work present in numerous prestigious institutions and collections such as the Fundación Mª Cristina Masaveu Peterson, Morgan Stanley Dean Witter Collection, Museo de Bellas Artes de A Coruña, CGAC and the Biblioteca Nacional de Madrid.
