D.W.C. White Nude - Painter Lluís Ribas


Lluís Ribas is one of the best known luministas of contemporary Spanish art. His profound knowledge of the secrets of light, shade and opaqueness are present throughout his work. His female forms are classics - brilliantly executed and exquisitely drawn. His palette contains a wide range of colors which give his paintings their great beauty.
The son of fishermen parents, Ribas learned the vicissitudes of a life dependent upon the sea at an early age. In spite of this, he always felt an affinity for the beach as it represented a point of departure for the horizon that marked the beginning of an adventure across the waters.



As a young artist, Ribas chose the sea, with its continuous harmonic movement as another favorite theme, which he translates to his canvas with an emotional precision few have mastered.
For Ribas, time is not important. He is an artist who prefers to work slowly - continuously defying his vision in a never-ending search for aesthetic. Although his successful career already spans more than twenty years, Ribas does not produce the quantity of paintings that others may, but each canvas is highly desired by galleries and collectors alike. Ribas is not a prolific painter. His disciplined manner of painting requires years of planning for an exhibition.
