Arranz-Bravo. Self-Portraits

This exhibition was devoted to the more than fifty self-portraits that Arranz-Bravo has done in the course of his artistic career. Arranz-Bravo has cultivated a deep, obsessive relationship with this genre and has become one of the artists on the Peninsula that have most engaged with the European tradition of the existential self-portrait. Like Dürer, Rembrandt, Van Gogh, Artaud, Francis Bacon and so on, the Barcelonan artist understands the self-portrait as a means of introspective exploration and, at the same time, as a medium for pursuing some of his main aesthetic concerns, such as the intensity of the gaze, organic expressiveness and chromatic effusion.
