Barcelona-born painter José Alcañiz’s artworks range from canvas and wall paintings to digital media and involve a carefully calculated process to create an intimate dialogue with the infinite possibilities offered by geometry.
He masters the technique of creating optical illusions that bring movement to light in his paintings, creating a vibration that seem physical to the eye. His technique is meticulous and follows an objective formula that expresses the transformation from the digital media to the efforts of the hand. José creates absolute patterns that will imprint differently in each viewer’s mind.
Specialised in Applied Arts and Mural Painting at the Escola Massana (Barcelona), his paintings and murals are spread out in collections and establishments around Barcelona, London and Rio de Janeiro.
