This is an experimental series where I seek to deconstruct painting in the same way that a chef does in modern cuisine, transforming the ingredients of a traditional dish into other textures, shapes and temperatures without breaking the flavors and harmonies of the ingredients. I achieve this deconstruction of art by combining the two main concepts of my work, painting and image transfer through photography. What I do first is a classic realistic painting on canvas and photograph it. Then I transfer that photograph printed on paper with gesso to another canvas, which is the final canvas.
My recent work speaks of the diversity of masks we wear, of how to be oneself while being many different people at the same time, of what we think we are but which varies constantly, of what we show we are versus what we often carry inside. This is represented in this work in which all the elements have been modified in its form, because it is not really the painting or the transfer that is seen, but a concealment of what it really is, a classic oil painting that is not really painted on the canvas.
Before this process I add a touch of color with acrylic paint being really the only painting that is on the canvas.
A painting decorates a room, but a unique artwork makes it stand out from the rest
The art completely transforms a room making it unique, personal and different from the rest and makes your home, office or business stand out transmitting an image of success, thus impressing your guests or customers. The neophotorealism, Raul’s new technique, mixes the classic figurative style that breaks with the traditional. Pure white backgrounds, deep blacks and pastel tones where the skin tones contrast with the grays of the transferred image creating a unique painting in the world, the perfect balance for a timeless decoration that will transform any room into a modern, elegant, sophisticated and above all unique place.

Certificate of Authenticity
Why Do You Need a Certificate of Authenticity?
The certificate is the document that ensure the authenticity of a piece of art. It guarantees the buyer that the artwork is authentic and genuine and will serve to avoid forgery, to know the trajectory of the work in particular and in the case that it is revalued, to trace its path and, in some cases, to increase its value even more.
