about Ismael Lagares
Lagares is one of the artists of his generation with greater national and international projection. His abstract canvases are an explosion of color 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 colorful works comes with the recent introduction of monochrome paintings, in which a single color 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 aluminum and completely abandoning the support to become free-standing sculptures.
