Francisco Bartus

Picture for category Francisco Bartus

Francisco Bartus is a Spanish painter born in 1965 in Valencia. He was encouraged by his teachers at school to study Art and after completing his education he started his career as a professional designer and plastic artist. His early career focused on still-life works, interpreted through a modern lens and adopting techniques which were enthusiastically accepted by galleries and the public.

Later, under the influence of the ideas of Carl Jung, he decided to pivot to a new genre which allowed him greater freedom of expression. Through the use of plastic and bright colours he aimed to explore how some of our deepest feelings are partially inherited, and are not only shaped by our personal or individual experience. Bartus thus developed a style to produce the stunning artworks that you see today, combining powerful pictorial techniques with an idea of the human ‘collectivity’ that underlies his most recent themes.

The use of heavy acrylics in creating 3D dimension is powerful and striking. His works carry an innovative narrative in the arc of storytelling, combining a variety of materials and techniques with fresh ideas to create compelling works.

Bartus has been widely exhibited in several galleries in USA, mainly in Florida, California and New York. Also in Europe, France, Spain and recently Germany and Switzerland
