Spanish artist Yago Hortal‘s acrylic paintings are wild and dynamic yet wondrously controlled. Hortal epitomizes a new wave of painters creating a contemporary understanding of abstraction, with works gushing, exploding, or dripping off the walls. With his explosive use of color, containing fluid marbling and three-dimensional texture, Yago’s works convey pure energy bouncing off the canvas, allowing freedom for the viewer’s own interpretation.

“A painting that talks about painting, and in consequence, about its own language autonomy, is a whirlpool that extends to in?nity, a pictorial-rational loop.” Yago Hortal
