Francisco Bartus is a Spanish painter, born in 1975 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. In this early stage, he focused on still lifes, to which he applied modern language and techniques that were enthusiastically accepted by both galleries and the public.
Then, under the influence of the ideas of Carl Jung, Francisco decided to change to a new genre: showing, in a plastic-style and bright expression how some of our deepest feelings are partially inherited and are not only shaped by our personal or individual experience.
In this way, Bartus developed his own unique style to produce the stunning artworks that he is now known for, combining powerful pictorial techniques with an idea of human collectivity.
The use of mixed media results in 3D effects that make his pieces so extraordinarily different. The layering of paint is striking, and adds yet another dimension to Bartus’s production. His works are innovative and unique, combining a variety of materials and techniques with fresh ideas to create exciting works.
Bartus has been widely exhibited in several galleries in USA, mainly in Florida, California and New York. He has also exhibited in in Europe, France, Spain, and recently Germany and Switzerland.
