Tomeu Ventayol (Alcúdia, 1945)

Tomeu Ventayol (Alcúdia, Mallorca, 1945), studied at the School of Fine Arts in Barcelona. His work is heavily inspired by the Cubist and Surrealist movements, which have brought him to a strong yet delicate abstraction.

Ventayol 's work is immersed in color and line in

conveying the subtleties of the dialogue between texture and material. The minimalist and poetic sense of his work, often done on aluminum, is a figurative reference to landscape, which through his technique becomes an abstract composition. Further to this, the artist scrapes many of his compositions with a spatula, thus exploring the possibilities of the brushstroke in his work space. His work, with its great delicacy and formal maturity, conveys the essence of visual poetry.


Ventayol lives and works in Mallorca, and his work is in major collections such as the Col·lecció Testimoni of the Fundació ‘la Caixa’, Barcelona and the collection of the Spanish Senate, Madrid. His work is also in the Museum of Menorca, in the Balearic Islands.
