Europe is truly a village for the Spaniard Carlos Ferg, who feels at home everywhere. Although he was born in Toledo in 1977, he set himself up in Manchester in 2012 where he found his inspiration. Before that, he graduated in art history at the University Castilla La Mancha (UCLM) and lived in Madrid for a long time. He began drawing at a very young age, but it was when he discovered oil painting that he started his self-taught career in 2010. He also worked with charcoals and pastels, but today he prefers acrylics.

His preferred subject remains space in the urban landscape, whose light he tries to capture as the main source of emotion. He soaks up different architectural styles as vehicles of creation. As part of the figurative tradition, his style, which although realist, expresses a subjective reality, sometimes by means of different shades of the same colour, other times through the use of monochrome colours (black and white), which give his works a particularly striking photographic aspect.

Since 2015, he has worked on a new project centred on three themes: solitude, time and existence, freely inspired by urban landscapes and existentialism so dear to the philosopher Jean-Paul Sartre. Pictorially, he claims to have numerous influences: Canaletto of course, Velázquez, the Pre- Raphaelite group, the Symbolists and even 20 th century photographers such as Henri Cartier-Bresson and Robert Doisneau.
