Like rain water
Antonio San Martín’s watercolors are not totally abstract, but they are not figurative either, in a search for the visitor to discover what each painting transmits to them or what they see in them. Thus, the exhibition is a different experience for each one, but always full of color and life, signs that have been constant in Antonio’s work.
According to the artist, art can serve as an antidote and calm internal conflicts and he has always been faithful to his philosophy of celebrating life through color and textures. In this special exhibition he shows more intimate works, in medium and small format, that he normally keeps to himself.
Antonio San Martín is a Spanish painter and designer, born in Cádiz in 1956.
