Felix Mas (Spanish painter, 1935)


Felix Mas considers himself a traditionalist, obsessed with form and color, creating images that celebrate femininity and luminous beauty of the female form.
Mas uses his paintbrush to convey emotion. It is his gift. Born in Barcelona, he trained at both the Artes y Oficios and the Escuela Superior de San Jorge, then furthered his artistic education with extensive travels throughout Europe and the United States, eventually returning to his native Barcelona to work.
For Mas, painting implies color, emotion and impression. His works, he says, are “infinite”.

Nicoletta Tomas Caravia (Spanish painter, 1963)


"Painting and I are a community, it has me, I have it. I go hand in hand with painting, because it is the intimate language between me and my soul.
I learn from painting. I express my deepest feelings in such a form of world. From my world to the outside world, both inside and outside are expressed in a mirror way. The inner world is always fighting. The patterns I draw, the light of human existence, the fragility and his greatness, all of which are accompanied by my imagination.

Nicoletta Tomas Caravia was born in Madrid. She is a long-standing international painter and illustrator.
She travels the world with exquisite skills, rich colors, gentle and keen touch.
The purest aspect of human beings also attracts the audience into their own experience.

Pedro Salinas | Wake up. Day calls you / Svegliati. Il giorno ti chiama..


Wake up. Day calls you
to your life: your duty.
And to live, nothing more.
Root it out of the glum
night and the darkness
that covered your body
for which light waited
on tiptoe in the dawn.

Svegliati. Il giorno ti chiama
alla tua vita: il tuo dovere.
A nient’altro che a vivere.
Strappa ormai alla notte
negatrice e all'ombra
che lo celava, quel corpo
di cui è in attesa, sommessa,
la luce, nell'alba.

Pedro Salinas | I look for you! / Al di là della gente ti cerco!

Yes, behind other people
I look for you.
Not in your name if they say it,
not in your image if they paint it.
Behind, behind, beyond.

Francisco Ribera Gómez (Spanish painter, 1907-1996)
