Manuel SALINAS. Courtesy Pintura Pintura, Madrid


Seville, 1940


Author of a huge work rooted in the trends of American abstractionism of the second half of the twentieth century, Sevillian artist Manuel Salinas is a protein creator who does not neglect the possibility of referring to drawing in his large-format works on paper.
Along with the fields of floating color, Salinas expresses himself through energetic strokes, of summary and expressive gesture that contradict the pictorial with the drawing and introduce references to intuitive geometries.
His works are part of the most important Spanish art collections, such as the Bank of Spain, the La Caixa Foundation, the Andalusian Center for Contemporary Art, the El Monte Foundation, the BBV Collection, the Endesa Collection, the Reina Sofía National Art Center Museum, the Argentaria Collection and the Patio Herreriano Contemporary Art Museum.
