Like Florence in the Renaissance and Paris and New York in modern times, Catalonia has spawned some of the world’s greatest masters.
Gaudi, Dalí, Picasso, Miró and Tàpies are among its most celebrated artists. The latest of these is Eduardo Arranz-Bravo, born in Barcelona and to this day, its eminent son. With his Catalonian peers, Arranz-Bravo shares a visceral creativity matched by outstanding technical skills. His art, like theirs, is signature, inventive, challenging and in constant evolution. Arranz-Bravo calls
on a profound understanding of his own position in the historical context of 20th century art, while simultaneously advancing figural art with each new work in a manner that some have called “futuristic.”
Arranz-Bravo has been the subject of solo exhibitions in private galleries and public institutions around the globe. He has represented
Spain in diverse world biennials, most notably, the prestigious 1980 Venice Biennale, recognized as the world’s most important international exposition of fine art. Retrospectives of his work include those staged at the Museo de Arte Moderno in São Paulo and the Paço Imperial in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
Hailed in Europe as one of the leading painters of his generation, Arranz-Bravo has been represented by Franklin Bowles Galleries
