Blai Tomas Ibañez
Spanish landscape artist Blai Tomas Ibañez captures the unique light and character of 'La Serenissima' in his beautiful and evocative scenes. His lyrical style, luminous palette, and poetic perspective bring the world's most romantic city to life in intimate detail.
"My urban landscapes require the magic of silence. I observe hints of light in every corner, yet in the shade there is a greater colour quality richer than the light itself."
Painting outside on location, Ibañez works directly with acrylics on canvas and chooses his subject based as much on light as on the elements of the scene. This leads him to spontaneous ways of working with gives each piece a sense of natural movement and gentle energy, especially when combined with his beautifully controlled understanding of light and shade, textures and reflections.
