Agusil | Contemporary Artist: Artworks & Biography

  • Agusil | Contemporary Artist: Artworks & Biography


After graduating from the School of Fine Arts in Barcelona in 1999, the Catalan artist Agusil immediately embarked on a brilliant career as a painter. He is fascinated by women's faces and was quickly drawn to portraits, which he worked on for many years alongside his cousin Maria, with whom he developed a unique technique.
Defining their pictorial practice as “polyhedral”, the duo resorts to many techniques to create their works. First, painted with oils and acrylics, the canvas then undergoes a joint work on this mixed pictorial material with a spatula or a paintbrush: this process allowing Agusil to play with the finishes, the light and textures. Carried out in powerfully colourful tones, the portraits are painted with vivacity with short and precise gestures. Sensitive to the work of their contemporaries such as the Chinese artist Yang Shaobin (b. 1963), the Spanish painter Santiago Ydáñez (b. 1969) or the French portrait painter Françoise Nielly, the two artists situate themselves in the continuity of the artistic movement of Action Painting, which favours the physical act of painting.
