Observearts: new portraits, Spanish painter Salustiano García Cruz (Seville, 1965)
pixellecoSalustiano's works have changed the limits of portrait painting. He approaches the human figure with the rigour of a Renaissance painter, through a detailed study of form and a clear brush stroke. Red: that’s the colour he likes to use in order to reflect in its perfection a deep and complex peace. It would be difficult to guess that his models have been found on the street: “I’m interested in a temporal and serene face, with a generous expression in the mouth and a transparent gaze. I want it to have the appearance of eternity”.
