My recent work explores the two parts that we all have, the «me» that we show and the inside one of ourselves, the hidden one. Mark Twain said that every man is a moon with a hidden face that never shows anyone. I represent this on the canvas with a painting done in a more or less classical way, using oils and acrylics, this would be the face we showed. Once finished and duly dried I transfer the image used as a motive for the painting over the canvas resulting a black and white image . This creates a work that navigates between color and black and white, the thin and smooth layer of paint versus the texture caused by the transfer and the mediums used for it or the finished figure of the painting in front of the broken image result of the transfer. This idea is clearly extrapolated to the use we give to social networks and the difference between our lives «offline» and «online» where in many cases not everything is as we show or where we pour hidden opinions into invented profiles
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 photorealism, 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.
