Born in 1958, Manuel Rubalo has dedicated himself to painting for many years. He exhibits permanently in France, Japan, Turkey and the United States. For him, the search for pleasure, transfigured by contemplation, appears as the only motivation, the only truth.
In a palette of always powerful tones and a mastered energy, a bouquet of flowers, a small street in Venice or a stormy evening take on the appearance of a theater set. With a lively, frank and spontaneous gesture, between figuration and imagination, the artist transposes reality, in a style flirting with a lyrical abstraction. The flowers blaze, the skies shine, the elements of reality unite in a shimmer of color and light.
His inspirations are nature and more particularly the places bathed in light, where the vegetation is luxuriant, such as Provence; but also the bouquets of flowers which give him an absolute freedom of expression and finally the marine scenes, where he is the master of the depth and the immensity of the landscapes.
