Spanish painter Ignasi Monreal is a multidisciplinary artist that has an eye for combining contemporary and digital art with classical elements. The results: eerie-looking paintings that have caught the world’s attention.
He works in various media including painting, design, creative direction, and film. Now based in Rome, Monreal has worked with giants like luxury brands Gucci, Dior, and Louis Vuitton, and has directed music videos for FKA twigs and Christine & the Queens.
“I started to paint very early on. I was just following my instinct,” said the painter in an interview for It’s Nice That. “I work in different media and each excites me in a different way,” he said, “oil painting is less controllable, and there is a certain charm of the unknown I enjoy very much.” Digital painting, on the other hand “has an amazing aspect of freedom.”.
His first solo show opened this year at La Fresh Gallery in Madrid.
Titled Plats Bruts, it features a series of round paintings of Mediterranean food.
