Carlos Vidal

Chiapas 1957

Carlos Vidal was born in Chiapas though since many years ago he lives in Spain. At the beginning of his career, he started to paint in a scholarly style, according to the trend at that moment. The presence of colour is one of his main characteristics, and he uses it intentionally, either to apply it or to give a meaning to its absence. “Colour is something that has been with me my whole life, for good or for bad. I need colour. Colour is to me the stroke and the shape, one only thing”, said Carlos Vidal.
His painting creates a context of the apparition and discovering, that is, a scene where one should read and re-read between lines, trying to learn by looking, as if it were the first time.
