Works by Matías Quetglás
Ciudadela, España 1946
Matías Quetglás is a painter, sculptor and figurative engraver belonging to the group of Spanish realists born in the postwar period. He graduated at the School of Fine Arts in Madrid, where he studied with Antonio López. His style is related to different trends of realism such as hyperrealism, magical realism and surrealism. The human figure is one of the most recurrent themes in his compositions, the nakedness of the bodies is not so much descriptive sensuality but universalisation of concepts, his naturalism coming to covert reality in a beautiful abstraction of spaces, volumes, empty and full.
He has exhibited nationally and internationally, in cities such as Barcelona, Madrid, Valladolid, Granada, Burgos, Paris, Stockholm, Gothenburg, Milan and Rome. His works are in important museums and galleries, such as the Reina Sofía National Art Center Museum in Madrid or the Insured Museum, Sempere Collection in Alicante, among others.
