Andrés Monreal

Commentary by Gary Hardy


On Monday of this week, José and I went to visit the flamboyant maestro, Andrés Monreal, at his home and studio which is a primeval finca that is buried in the woods and the countryside of San Mateo.

Andrés Monreal is an extraordinary artist and a man who on the initial meeting gives a glare and a stare that goes all the way through you like a gilt-edged sabre cutting butter.

José did most of the talking whilst I made myself busy by taking some pictures of this character, his environment and the soundings that he lives and works in to create his bizarre paintings that are always in demand.
