Rafa Forteza

Rafa Forteza began his career with a work that is identified with gestural abstraction, in which fragmentation was a fundamental element and shaped its later production. At the beginning of the 1980s, he abandoned that abstraction and ventured into neo-expressionism, so that, at the end of the decade, he would radically break with all that line, a will to rupture that will continue throughout his career. The rupture finally leads to a period of reconstruction in which it eliminates all the figurative references that at present translates into a mature painting with unique works.
