About

Graham Hill Circuit de Montjuïc 1969 Lotus 49 original acrylic painting BALAGUER , Alex ( Barcelona 1968 ) During early childhood, Àlex Balaguer began to sketch motorcars symbolic of Maranello’s trademark vehicle.

His works are carried out with great courage reflecting the richness of textures and nuances that can be achieved through boldness and directness. Power is the obvious expressive component. The central theme of imagination is the subject, the car as a pretext. It is subjected to stress without falling into sensationalism bestowed with strongly charged emotion whilst approaching the world. In some cases, the imagination shows its formality as it enters into a phenomenon closing in on the dramatic movement and expressive voice that suggests a physiological space in which hope dominates this particular”….
