Adrián Goma is a painter from Madrid who has not turned 30 yet. Born and resident in the neighborhood of San Blas, it is from there that he observes and reacts to reality with an irresistible personality, which is on the fringes of clichés and works in the diffused straight line of his own individuality. Being a child he chose the self-taught path, a decision that keeps being solid today and is the base of his artistic proposal. It is combined with the constant presence on his ideological horizon of international pictorial models such as Francis Bacon, Egon Schiele or Lucian Freud. His work is focused on the portrait as his main way of expression, but his production and artistic investigations embrace other subjects like animation and sculpture, illustration and comic. He wants to capture his big temperament and the great variety of struggling sentiments that walk with him every day.
With a master brush-stroke directed by an unusual technique in such a young painter, we find ourselves before a collection of attractive and well performed works. Cascales made his début twelve years ago in the Segrelles Gallery. We have enjoyed with him the most original Valencian light. We have been delighted with his walks through the Venetian canals. He has guided us in the cold Parisian streets and has accompanied us in a visit to the most suggestive landscapes in Prague. Every showing has been a “travel journal” that becomes secret when he stamps his works with such a personal and convincing vision. And it is not something to miss when still in his earlier years as a painter, he stated that what he intended was to transmit life and feelings to his work. And the audience knows he has got it: every artwork is a part of him, an ensemble of sentiments that uncontrollably escape in a vibrant and daring brush-stroke. Every artwork is an emotion, a sensation, a life lesson that Cascales gives shape to with mastery and knowledge.
Pedro De Matteis, born in Buenos Aires (Argentina), studied with Tulio de Sagastizabal and Lorenzo Corrales. His work has been exhibited throughout Argentina, and in Europe, in cities like Madrid, Barcelona or London. He was awarded with the Salón Stimulus 2011 and 2013 prize and with the Human Nature Price in 2012, among others. His work focuses on the human body, the person that inhabits it and the passing of time.
Pedro Fausto was born in Tijarafe in 1955 and studied at the School of Arts and Crafts in Sta. Cruz de la Palma and at the School of Arts of Sta. Cruz de Tenerife (Canary Islands). From 1979 he has exhibited his works annually in different rooms in the Canary archipelago and also in Madrid, Barcelona, Holland and Germany. He is spiritual heir to the Baroque legacy and illusion and he transmits it with a modern and autonomous language. To his fortune, it does not meet fashion trends that, as already has happened to many other chapters of the aesthetics of consumption, tend to be sacralised and forgotten with dizzying speed. He keeps a go it alone strategy – with all the advantages and disadvantages this choice entails – and presents such objective and beautiful, such honest and wise results, that he is placed among our most original artists in the present reading of historical genres. The keys to his success among the audience and the critics lie in his solid academic background, in his continuous experimentation in the solitude of his studio, and above all, in his concern for solving with his own procedures the eternal issues of painting, that result in works with the best classic scent and the freest contemporary breath.

Grech Santos is a Majorcan painter fascinated by the light and reflections of the rainy days and the sea. He conveys strength and movement by capturing the image as if it was a living and latent memory, sometimes charged with nostalgia of his embarked life, which significantly influenced his early paintings. With a modernist and impressionist style applied to everyday scenes of contemporary life, his painting captures the contrast between the grey of the city and the intense colours of the vehicles and pedestrians, creating a dynamic and full of life urban atmosphere.
David Farrés was educated in the study of the renowned painter Manuel Sánchez Almendros (director of the missing Mediterranean Academy in Barcelona, founded by the departed Joaquim Torrents Lladó). His main themes aim to provide the observer with a breaking vision while taking care of the techniques used by his admired classical painters. In his collection "In the Museum" this link can be seen directly. Regarding his works with city views (mainly Barcelona), the precision in the drawing stands out together with a caring way of treating the matter in such a way that the artwork is maintained in a pictorial shot away from the purely photographic purpose. It is in his figurative and nude portraits where a biggest freedom in his style can be appreciated and where we find the connection between art and happiness. He always looks for brush-strokes that invite the observer/’s gaze to a suggestive and interesting tour.
Lucas Ninin was born in Córdoba, Argentina, in 1990. When he was 12 he started his studies with the artist Marta Milliani. In 2012, he enters professionally the world of art in his hometown with a permanent exhibition in the Monaco Art Gallery. A year later, he started a journey that led him to participate in various projects in Argentina, Brazil and France, and he finally chose Paris as the place to settle and develop his work. His work reflects the simplicity of his existence, bringing aspects of his childhood that are still intact on him and highlighting his unquestionable innocence.
Francisco Navarro was born in Madrid in 1959 and has a graduate in Law by the Complutense University of Madrid. After 12 years of practice he left his legal profession to devote himself to painting. His favourite themes are portrait and nature. He is independent, a self-taught painter and has participated in group exhibitions in Madrid, Ghent or Miami and has had solo exhibitions in Alicante, Madrid and Murcia.
The artist Jordi Torrent provides the spectator with a need for describing the emotion of the moment, its colour and its depth.
Numerous and different awards such as the 1st prize Bruixa Arenys de Munt (2014) and the International Prize Tossa de Mar (2014) back up his multifaceted way of looking and style found behind his work. The few but intense brushstrokes that define his paintings sum up the full of shades and elaborated work he ponders passionately.
