Enric M. Catala
Abstract Artist ♥ Passionate Philologist
Said about him:
Beyond the abstract geometric, the paintings of Enric M. Català exceed the cold minimalism and connects with the tradition of Mondrian or Klee and Mark Rothko, with special reference to Joan Miró in the formal and essential aspect: the rhythm of the plot of colors and composition. According to his words, the author tries to ”reconnect abstraction that should retain its austerity and great ambition while doing itself much more specific in their content… My position is not puritanical, it is deeply sensual…“
