ARTIST STATEMENT



As an artist I love the harmony, balance and symmetry that I find in nature all of which contribute to a great beauty. I can be captivated by the light passing through the leaves of a tree creating a subdued light that partially illuminates some flowers, or how the sun's rays frolic when they move on different glass bodies that give rise to a myriad of shapes, colors, reflections and shadows. I can be entranced by a flower, the eyes of a child or the beautiful figure of a woman. For me, everything in nature: forms, light and color is like an open book that connects me directly with the Creator, creating in me feelings of gratitude and reverence pushing me to create art.



My source of inspiration



My inspiration comes from many sources. I want my art to be beautiful also have great power of seduction and so I resort to realism carried to its highest expression. My works must sensitize, transmit emotions and feelings ... even fascinate. Therefore I use symbolic elements, elements such as transparency of the glass, the hardness of marble, flower and fresh fruit sprinkled with raindrops, the red rose symbol of passionate love, etc. In my opinion, the beauty of the sun reflections on glass objects is only comparable to the charm of the face of a beautiful woman and the beauty of the flowers ... so, in many of my works I decide to combine two or three of these elements creating delicate, attractive, incredibly beautiful and full of symbolism compositions.



Creative process



When I think about performing a new work I can start from a previous idea or emotion without having very clear what the final result will be. As the idea matures it becomes clearer in my mind. Then I take my own photographs with models for the realization of the work. Each artwork can be based on one or more of these photographs. At other times the reverse happens, is a pre-image that gives me something, an emotion or a feeling that leads me to create an artwork from that picture.



The technique



I do the underpainting with acrylics and the overpainting with oil glazes. Once I have prepared the canvas and the drawing is transferred, depending on the subject I have to paint I apply a monochrome grisaille or a verdaccio. I do it with modern acrylic colors with excellent light fastness. I continue to work the underpainting working in layers with acrylic colors. Once I have developed the artwork with this procedure to satisfaction I apply several coats of matte finish transparent acrylic medium. I then proceed to finish the work in oil-based glazes, enhancing lights, shadows and intensifying contrasts, adding nuances and painting the final details. After drying the oil paint I apply to all the artwork a final satin varnish.

BIOGRAPHY



Francisco Rafael Martinez Yuste with the artistic name Paco Yuste Monreal was born in Valencia, Spain in 1958. From childhood he felt great fascination for drawing and painting. His art interest was awakened from very young and was already perceived at the age of 12 years old, period of his childhood in which he spends his free time drawing his favorite comic book characters. He studied illustration and design at the Academy of Fine Arts of Belgium 1985 - 1988. In 1988 he returned to Spain. Two years later he began working as freelance in illustration and graphic design and later in murals painting. Always seeking excellence in performing his artworks specializes in murals of great format (18m. X 5m.) And performs commissioned portraits. In the 90s hi follows several continuing education courses to adapt to the new technologies applied to graphic design, illustration and Web design specializing in programs like Photoshop, Freehand, Corel Draw, etc. In 1998 he held his first exhibition at the International Exhibition in Barcelona ARTEXPO with Gabriela Art Gallery and has since fully devoted to painting.



His works include topics as flowers, crystals, still life and figure. Many of his works are in private collections in Spain, England, Belgium, France, Russia, China, Japan and The United States.
