Soria, Spain, 1959
The unmistakable work of Dis Berlin, even when it is done in oil, usually shows a drawing base that relates it to certain classicism. His mid-century images, coming from a very aesthetic visual culture that has lasted to this day, blend and overlap in compositions of surreal air, always very graphic. They are still lifes, landscapes or even only intriguing patterns in which bright colour is a very important emotional component.
Dis Berlin is an artist who tends more and more to careful and precious manufacturing. This does not prevent him from investigating new media such as the binding of old books that he presents in the “Bookbindings” series, which besides being a material part of the work inspire the choice of objects and figures drawn.
