Sobre l'artista

I have been drawing and painting since I can remember.

When I was 12, I started my formation, I where to my first art academy with brilliant results according to the words of my teachers and the other students.

My CV includes:

I have been in some art shows, as Affordable Art London many times, but I haven’t been very interested in art shows, fairs, and brick and mortar galleries, instead of this I show my work at internet (with more than 500.000 visits until now).

I am also exploring the possibilities of a new technique based in videogame engines to create stereoscopic and  navigable immersive environments based in my paintings. So with a virtual glasses you will be able to “enter” in the paintings and “walk” into the scenes. It’s a very time consuming activity and very complex, but I think the results are going to be great!

Now my only activity is to paint, create “videogame” art, play the bass and write some books like “Nacho Frades, Meditaciones” (Only Spanish).

In my work I want to open a window to secret worlds that exists for themselves but remain undiscovered. My vision is a particular vision of time and space where the objects are presented naked, frozen and unseen, and remain unconscious being painted.

I’m a digital painter, I paint in the computer, I have painted a lot with oils, but now I prefer digital. I have worked in feature film computer animation and the digital way is good for me. My work is intended to be printed in archival quality with the best printing available methods and resolutions.

I see a big number of paintings everyday, but I find inspiration inside me, and often in the architectural volumes I see in the streets, but mainly my inspiration is from the interior of me.

I am not very influenced by other artists, but I have to mention Edward Hooper, who gives me the gift of paintings plenty of absolute silence.

My intention is to create scenes in which calm, tranquility, and silence is absolute, no useless noises.

I do my job in several lines of work that respond to natural colors, red, green, white, gray…, with no order, each of them with variations in models that despite being mainly architectural, are very different. I an also exploring video-games as a form of art.

Hope you find tranquility in this works.
