Enric Torres-Prat ✿

Enric Torres Prat Figurative Realist/Romantic Realist
Painter, Illustrator, Photographer & Printmakerwas born in 1938 Barcelona, Spain.  He studied painting with the prestigious masters of his time.  After finishing his studies, Enric traveled throughout Europe and the USA, immersing himself in the more romantic aspects of figurative painting.
As a “Student of the Masters,” he studied in the world’s most important museums and galleries, including El Prado, the Louvre, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York and the British Museum, but the Rijksmuseum of Amsterdam influenced him the most.
There, Enric was captivated by the paintings of Rembrandt, especially the dark and golden colors that distinguish the works of this great painter.
While still in his early 20’s, Enric began his professional career as a freelance artist for a prestigious commercial art agency.  He quickly established an industry-wide reputation for creating award-winning, flawlessly executed imagery.  In 1978, Enric’s work was the subject of an extensive film that was shown in movie theaters throughout Spain.
Enric considers his work a combination of academic draftsmanship and strong narrative qualities.  He especially likes the way light strikes human skin, with a luminous quality that shows how flesh both reflects and absorbs light.
The women who inhabit Enric’s most recent works are dramatically secluded in darkened rooms and hallways.  They seem oblivious to the viewer’s presence – or is it unconcerned?  They stand or sit, lost in thought and impervious to the outside world.  Awash in memories of the past or dreams of the future, they engage us as silent sentinels of beauty, longing and haunting emotions.
Torres Prat has exhibited his paintings in some of the most prestigious galleries in the USA, Europe and Japan.
