About

Spanish artist Xavi Carbonell born 1971, actively paints like a child as an adult, and leaves all of his pieces "untitled" so that each viewer can create their own story. The resulting work is fun, fresh, and powerful. The play-fullness of the pieces are enjoyed by both children and adults and some describe the work as a type of Rorschach test since everyone “sees” and smiles at something different. As we view this piece our imagination explodes and we wonder is this a painting of a party, a playground, a family dinner, an office meeting, a busy street? The answer is different for everyone. This mixed media on canvas which includes oil paint, graphite, permanent marker, oil pastel, and pen uses vibrant reds, blues, oranges, yellows, greens, grays and blacks to offer an intense expression against the tan Belgian linen canvas. The oil paint brush strokes offer a raised texture against the smoothness of the belgian linen canvas. Critics have described Carbonell's work as reminiscent of Cy Twombly, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Picasso and Miro. Carbonell has been selected for a variety of Awards and has exhibited in the Americas, Europe, Asia, Africa and the Middle East. Xavi Carbonell lives and works in Alcoi Spain. This piece comes framed in an elegant white wood floater frame. It measures 48 x 48 x 2 inches framed.
