Antoni Tapies

Trough a friend’s sorrow, I came surprisingly close to the Catalane artist Antoni Tàpies. With to portraits I salute him, his artistry and his life.

Antoni Tàpies died at the age of 88 years on 6 February 2012. He is one of the leading exponents of informality worldwide and considered as one of the most prominent Spanish artists of the twentieth century’

He is also self-taught, which I think adds an extra meaning in this context, as both Pirosmani and I belong to that category of artists.

For certain, as an artist you are affected in a very special way by your fellow artist’s life, stories, dreams, doubts and greatness… and everything you sense and see In their works, brushstrokes, themes and visions.

 Antoni´s favorite music, Wagner’s Parsifal, filled my studio. The result was two paintings:  ”Parsifal Der Dritte Akt” and ”Begegnung Mit Antoni Tàpies”. I did participate with these paintings at the international exhibition: ”Begegnung Mit Pirosmani” 2012, Georgien.
