About

Barcelona, Spain 1965

His artworks are intuitive, spontaneous and without an implicit message, his creation speaks for itself. In recent Ballesteros has experimented in the field of abstraction, playing with geometric complexity through the uniformity of pigments and the reduction of profiles. As a result of these investigations, his most recent work reflects the convergence of rounded shapes on a monochromatic background where the viewer is immersed in an energetic and dynamic art.

Materials are for the artist a key aspect in his creative process, focusing on the materials such as paper, steel, enamel and other that allow to artist to meditate purely on the forms and how they are affected by colors. Using bold tones or pastel palettes, Ballestero’s oeuvre is easy recognisable and pure.
